reduce gabble's stanza size for IBB packets

Action Needed: Verified: no

Ejabberd has a default maximum stanza size of 64k, but gabble (IIRC) assumes 256k packets are acceptable. This should be lowered to aid interoperability with real-world Jabber servers without the same hacks that jabber.laptop.org has (now) got. See #4108 for details.

I've added a proposed patch, on the basis that base64 produces 4 bytes of output for 3 bytes of input, it adds a 33% overhead. The maximum stanza size is 64k in ejabberd by default, so I've set the input block size to 45k, which will yield a maximum of 60k after base64 encoding, and allow 4k for the XML encapsulation.

I've pushed telepathy-gabble-0.7.1-0.6.olpc2 with this patch into koji, should appear in Joyride soon. Morgs, can you check activity sharing works OK with this package then assign to dgilmore for inclusion in Update.1 (given the patch is already approved).

Tested telepathy-gabble-0.7.1-0.6.olpc2 in joyride using write and inserting a picture - works. I see this is triaged to Update.1 but I don't see approval for Update.1, so assigning to ApprovalForUpdate.

Build engineer can assign it back to morgs when it's in Update.1 for testing.
