Bug 5499: Page reload does not send any cache control headers

Attachment 8891: proposed fix

------- Additional Comments from Alexey Proskuryakov <ap at nypop.com>
This fixes both manual reload and window.location.reload; not sure if there are
other ways to cause reload that should send cache control headers
(window.location.assign to the same URL doesn't do that in Firefox).

Unfortunately, there doesn't seem to be a way to send If-Modified-Since
together with max-age=0 (in other words, to validate freshness) with
NSURLRequest, rdar://4590785. This doesn't affect correctness, but wastes

The TransferJob-related code in WebCore::Frame seemed to be unused, other than
for passing response HTTP headers.
