Nodelay extra field

If the authentication fails, Dovecot typically waits 0-2 seconds before sending back the "authentication failed" reply. If this field is set, no such delay is done. This is commonly used with proxying and login referrals.

Note that if PAM is used as the passdb, it adds an extra delay which can't be removed.
