This function will set the maximum size of all handshake
messages. Handshakes over this size are rejected with
GNUTLS_E_HANDSHAKE_TOO_LARGE error code. The default value is
128kb which is typically large enough. Set this to 0 if you do
not want to set an upper limit.
The reason for restricting the handshake message sizes are to
limit Denial of Service attacks.
Note that the maximum handshake size was increased to 128kb from
48kb in GnuTLS 3.5.5.
