Handle protocol-relative URLs in syndication

Component: contrib.syndication Version: master

When trying to use protocol-relative URLs (see 1 or 2) like for example returned by django-hosts the syndication framework prepends the protocol and the domain. This way a valid URL is transformed into an invalid or at least useless URL.


class MyFeed(Feed):
    def item_link(self, item):
       url = reverse_crossdomain("myhost", "myview", 
                            view_kwargs={'some': 'argument'})
       return url

The value of url is "" and the rendered feed contains

The syndication framework should either just pass the url as it is or prepend the protocol. For the case of prepending the protocol a patch is attached
