add an option to disable slp

There existed a "use slp" directive (brought by slp.diff) during 3.0.x times.
It was omitted (or perhaps intentionally removed?) during the 3.1.x porting.
Was there a specific reason for this?

At the moment, there's no way to disable slp, when it's compiled in.
rsync always tries to register the services over slp and that results in errors and spams system log.

Eg see https://bugzilla.opensuse.org/show_bug.cgi?id=922710.

I'm attaching a modified slp.diff, which reintroduces the "use slp" global parameter.
