What do you think about this separation of the fast open code?

When the fastopen() function is used, all the push and pull callbacks
are overridden with the ones that can cope with the TCP fast open.
This separates the two code bases.

What I found hard with TCP fast open, is error recovery. That has to
be implemented by checking errors of the gnutls_handshake() function.
