Callers of the http code may want to know which auth types
were available for the previous request. But after finishing
with the curl slot, they are not supposed to look at the
curl handle again. We already handle returning other
information via the slot_results struct; let's add a flag to
check the available auth.

Note that older versions of curl did not support this, so we
simply return 0 (something like "-1" would be worse, as the
value is a bitflag and we might accidentally set a flag).
This is sufficient for the callers planned in this series,
who only trigger some optional behavior if particular bits
are set, and can live with a fake "no bits" answer.
