Bug #22031 output containing null bytes is truncated in curl_write()

It looks like there is a bug in the curl_write() function of ext/curl/curl.c:

In the case PHP_CURL_STDOUT (line 337), PUTS() is used. A buffer containing null bytes will be echoed up to the first null byte (which will be interpreted as a null terminator by puts), and the rest will be discarded, regardless of 'size' and 'nmemb'.

I suggest using PHPWRITE(data, length) instead of PUTS(data). This ensures that the whole buffer is echoed, even if it contains null bytes.
