I am attaching a patch to fix EOS.  This basically adds an int to the
request_rec.  This int checks to see if the EOS bucket has already been
sent.  The int is initiall set to zero.  Ap_pass_brigade checks the last
bucket everytime it is called.  If the last bucket is an EOS bucket, then
the flag is set.  If not, it isn't.  This assumes that EOS will not be any
buckets after the EOS.  Since it doesn't make any sense to add a bucket
after the EOS bucket, I am ok with that.  ap_finalize_request checks that
flag before it sends an EOS bucket down.  This patch is completely
untested, but it makes logical sense.  It should fix the bug with the cgi
modules, namely that two EOS buckets get sent for every CGI request.
