http2: limit client initial MAX_CONCURRENT_STREAMS

Prevent the client trying to establish more streams than the server is willing to accept during the initial life time of a connection by limiting `maxConcurrentStreams` to `100`, the http2 specifications
recommended minimum, until we've received the initial `SETTINGS` frame from the server.

After a `SETTINGS` frame has been received use the servers `MAX_CONCURRENT_STREAMS`, if present, otherwise use `1000` as a reasonable value.

For normal consumers this will have very little impact, allowing a decent level of concurrency from the start, and for highly concurrent consumers or large bursts it will prevent significant number of rejected streams being attempted hence actually increasing performance.

Fixes golang/go#39389
