fallback to lseek()/read() if mmap() fails (#fixes 2666)
e.g. when mmap() is used on lighttpd-controlled temporary files
used POST request body (mod_cgi) and PUT file upload (mod_webdav)
replace use of stream_open() on potentially untrusted files
(protect against SIGBUS if a file is modified while map is read)
Note: stream.[ch] may be removed in a future release
For now, stream.[ch] will read entire file into memory if mmap fails
and so it should only be used on trusted files, e.g. config files.
http_auth basic and digest files are typically small and so buffered
stdio fopen(), fgets(), fclose() will likely be approximately as fast
mod_dirlisting header and readme files are typically small and so
open(), read(), close() will typically be approximately as fast as mmap
mod_ssi will likely be much faster, now buffering SSI page construction
rather than a potentially huge number of file open() calls, one for each
tiny chunk of text between SSI directives.
mod_webdav COPY and MOVE may be slower due to removal of mmap, but are
now more resilient to partial writes.

github: closes #57
Common case is on non-empty files, and doing fstat() after open()
eliminates ToC-ToU between stat() and then open(). While file size
of the target file might still change, the fstat() is on the opened
file, and can not be on different file (which was possible with stat())

- stream_open()-ing an empty file shouldn't return an error (and didn't on my
- don't try to handle empty file as non-error in config_parse_file;
this fixes the read of an potentially unitialized variable
- stream_open()-ing an empty file doesn't try to map the file anymore
and should not result in any errors; return an empty stream instead.
- stream_open(): make sure the returned stream is always initialized
correctly, and can always be used with stream_close(), whether opening
was successful or not
- stream_close(): also reset the size member
