TCP Fast Open (RFC7413) is a mechanism that allows data to be carried in the
SYN and SYN-ACK packets and consumed by the receiving end during the initial
connection handshake, saving up to one full round-trip time (RTT).
CURL *curl = curl_easy_init();
curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_URL, "https://example.com");
curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_TCP_FASTOPEN, 1L);
Added in 7.49.0. This option is currently only supported on Linux and OS X
Returns CURLE_OK if fast open is supported by the operating system, otherwise
