In particular, gcc complains as follows:

        CC remote-curl.o
    remote-curl.c: In function `rpc_service':
    remote-curl.c:403: warning: 'gzip_size' might be used uninitialized \
        in this function

The 'gzip_size' variable would not, in fact, be used uninitialized.
However, in order to suppress the warning, we simply initialize the
variable to zero in it's declaration.

Hi Jeff,

Could you please squash this into commit df126e108 ("remote-curl: hoist
gzip buffer size to top of post_rpc", 31-10-2012), which is part of
your 'jk/maint-http-half-auth-fetch' branch.
