[rsyslog] 4.2.1 parse request

Hi David,

I was able to extend the parser to support it. However, I can not do that in
4.2.1, as this is a stable release and, by definition, stable releases do
only receive bug fixes (and this is a feature enhancement). So it is part of
the next version of v4-devel.

However, the patch should be easy to apply to previous versions if you like
to. Find it here:
