QUIC: optimized sending stream response.

When a stream is created by client, it's often the case that nginx will send
immediate response on that stream. An example is HTTP/3 request stream, which
in most cases quickly replies with at least HTTP headers.

QUIC stream init handlers are called from a posted event. Output QUIC
frames are also sent to client from a posted event, called the push event.
If the push event is posted before the stream init event, then output produced
by stream may trigger sending an extra UDP datagram. To address this, push
event is now re-posted when a new stream init event is posted.

An example is handling 0-RTT packets. Client typically sends an init packet
coalesced with a 0-RTT packet. Previously, nginx replied with a padded CRYPTO
datagram, followed by a 1-RTT stream reply datagram. Now CRYPTO and STREAM
packets are coalesced in one reply datagram, which saves bandwidth.
