Support returning a deferred from the SNI callback

The callback set through set_tlsext_servername_callback requires the return value to be a valid context, but it does not allow a deferred to be returned instead.

As getting the right context depending on the requested server name might involve a non-blocking operation (e.g. fetching the certificate to be used from a remote resource), it would be useful to be able to return a deferred from the callback and have the underlying code wait until it fires before continuing with the SSL handshake.

I (GaretJax) have implemented a solution to this issue for a frontend proxy and SSL terminator that can be used as starting point for the implementation here (extract):
