[Libwebsockets] soname in CMake

Hi Joakim -

I added a patch to bump the version to 1.2 and the soname for the 
library to so.3.0.0

http://git.libwebsockets.org/cgi-bin/cgit/libwebsockets/commit/?id=48258817a087579aa3adb27b442f07b9961eebe0

but when I tried to update the CMakelists.txt the same I couldn't see 
how it sets the soname.

All it needs to do is add

-version-info 3:0:0

to LDFLAGS used to make the library.  Since we're making small changes 
to the api, it really needs to make a break with the old soname or apps 
will crash when they update the library.  It only needs it on the 
library link action.

Can you make a small patch to add this to the CMake side?

Thanks,

-Andy
