http: do not set up curl auth after a 401
When we get an http 401, we prompt for credentials and put them in our global credential struct. We also feed them to the curl handle that produced the 401, with the intent that they will be used on a retry. When the code was originally introduced in commit 42653c0, this was a necessary step. However, since dfa1725, we always feed our global credential into every curl handle when we initialize the slot with get_active_slot. So every further request already feeds the credential to curl. Moreover, accessing the slot here is somewhat dubious. After the slot has produced a response, we don't actually control it any more. If we are using curl_multi, it may even have been re-initialized to handle a different request. It just so happens that we will reuse the curl handle within the slot in such a case, and that because we only keep one global credential, it will be the one we want. So the current code is not buggy, but it is misleading. By cleaning it up, we can remove the slot argument entirely from handle_curl_result, making it much more obvious that slots should not be accessed after they are marked as finished.
