Subject DO NOT REPLY [Bug 48130] DAV operations on large filesets consume all the OS memory

We have also come into this problem in our product. As in our case httpd runs
on an embedded device memory is a bit constrained, but some users still create
directories with more than a thousand files per directory which uses up a lot
of memory.

To fix the situation we have done a few patches to mod_dav and mod_dav_fs to
remove as much O(N) dependencies on the number of files per directory. We have
had them in production since long with no issues, so I am pushing them to be
considered for inclusion in httpd. Note that the patches are probably not
perfect but still they do improve the situation significantly. The only
remaining O(N) source I see is the lock DB, but that is O(N) in the number of
locks, so I think that is much less of an issue.

Patches against httpd 2.2.21 follow.
