Sure, I suppose any module can read POST data, therefore the fix for the
extra CRLF data should be in http_main.c or wherever.

I am a bit puzzled as to the original problem. What we are trying to
do here is avoid small write()'s and hence reduce the number of packets
by delaying the delivery of data. Isn't that precisely what the Nagle
algorithm was supposed to achive?
