Ok, so we fail because we #defined a noop incorrectly... the code that invokes
the fn;


didn't 'really' need to be protected.  However, the real bug is here, in 
mpm_common.c, we have

#if defined(TCP_NODELAY) && !defined(MPE) && !defined(TPF) && !defined(WIN32)
void ap_sock_disable_nagle(apr_socket_t *s)

while in mpm_common.h we had;

#if defined(TCP_NODELAY) && !defined(MPE) && !defined(TPF)
void ap_sock_disable_nagle(apr_socket_t *s);
#define ap_sock_disable_nagle(s)        /* NOOP */

Plain old httpd bug.

In order to record the 'evolution', and what happened here in CVS history,
could we please apply the following patch -before- we commit Allen's patch 
to fix the whole problem for good?  I'm just looking to document what
was broken here and what the pre-2.0.46 side-effects were...

  Correct a mis-correlation between mpm_common.c and mpm_common.h;
  This patch reverts us to pre-2.0.46 behavior, using the ap_sock_disable_nagle
  noop macro, because ap_sock_disable_nagle was never compiled on Win32.

  The next patch introduces ap_sock_disable_nagle for the first time on Win32.
