I'm currently working on changing ap_core_input_filter so that it
doesn't mask the EAGAIN in AP_MODE_GETLINE mode.  There's
a catch, though:

     if (mode == AP_MODE_GETLINE) {
         /* we are reading a single LF line, e.g. the HTTP headers */
         rv = apr_brigade_split_line(b, ctx->b, block, HUGE_STRING_LEN);

if apr_brigade_split_line returns APR_EAGAIN, it will have
consumed the partial line and put it in b.  So if core_input_filter
returns rv at this point, the caller will receive the partial line and
EAGAIN.  We'll need to do one of two things:

- Buffer the partial line in ap_core_input_filter, by removing the
   buckets from b and putting them back at the start of ctx->b.

- Or buffer the partial line in getline_nonblocking (or  

Anybody have a preference among these options?
