Fix two potentially endless loops in http library

The first can be problematic if poll(2) returns POLLHUP|POLLERR on a
socket. Before it would be only be respected for SOCKOP_RECV, but since
they can also occur on other socket operations, esp. in combination with
OpenSSL, letting the socket functions handle POLLHUP|POLLERR seems to be
the right thing.

The second is a typo leading to an endless loop if the first line of an
HTTP connection is empty (simply "\r\n"). Instead of removing the empty
line, it would remove anything after it.
