Per my previous email, I seriously doubt that old_write is posing a problem
here. Yes, it might have buffered content, but per Ryan's point:

ANY filter inserted by the subreq could be holding content. The subrequest
definitely MUST flush out its filter stack before going away.

Yes, old_write buffers, and if that is "attached" to the subrequest, then it
must be flushed. But it really isn't about old_write.

I think the subrequest would need to flush its filter chain before going
away. Has nothing to do with the modules, since they don't know they are
operating as part of a subreq filter chain.
