No, we definitely need to do that cleanup in core_output_filter,
because that's the only code that's guaranteed to still be runnable
by the time we detect the aborted connection.  The handler may have
finished running long before the connection is aborted, and in an
async MPM the thread that ran all the other request hooks is likely
to have moved on to a new request.
