As of late, the rule has become this: individual buckets can contain no
more than an apr_size_t.  A brigade can have total length up to an
apr_off_t.  So apr_bucket_split() and friends SHOULD take an apr_size_t,
because that's the biggest the bucket can be anyway.  Something within
ap_http_filter needs to handle the conversion, I'd expect.
