[PATCH 3/4] http: Fix redirect handling in auth form loop

The gateway may ask the user to fill out different forms that live at
different URLs, e.g.

    GET /+webvpn+/index.html
    (returns <form method="post" action="/+webvpn+/index.html"> and
     username/password form elements)
    POST /+webvpn+/index.html
    (returns <form method="post" action="/+webvpn+/login/challenge.html">
     and challenge/response form elements)
    POST /+webvpn+/login/challenge.html
    (returns <auth> node with valid cookie)

The refactored openconnect_obtain_cookie() loop tried to post the
challenge/response data to index.html, preventing successful login.  This
patch changes the logic so that it will honor the new "action" attribute
if present.

This probably does not affect XML POST mode, because XML POST <form> tags
do not seem to use attributes.
