[gnutls-devel] removing compression

 As I dig into TLS 1.3 support where compression is no longer
supported, I realized that keeping compression for TLS 1.2 or earlier
would only cause problems by making complex code even more
complicated. As TLS compression is already considered insecure, I
would like to drop that support completely (an MR is at [0]), unless
there are serious objections. If none, I'll merge that removal by the
end of this month.
