Thanks Pascal for help ;-)
All my patch is include in upstream (only some specify cast or
Wc++compact warning...)
I have a my own branch on github with ntghttp and wireshark stuff (
https://github.com/alagoutte/nghttp2/commits/wireshark (may be need a
git push from my dev machine)

I have found a another lib (with less code...) with only http2 huffman
decode but no time to try
https://code.google.com/p/lightweight-http2-huffman-decoder/
