http: resource: drain reply payload on redirection/error

François Cartegnie requested to merge fcartegnie/vlc:mr070901 into master

Payload is not read for non 200 replies to disconnect faster.

This prevents proper reuse of connections, and also creates bogus replies on 401 Authentification where previous payload is merged with auth reply headers.
