AFAICT, ap_read_async_request() on the branch can't handle a partial
line correctly.

Noting of course that ap_core_input_filter is 'cute' and masks EAGAIN.
 So, you'll never see EAGAIN from this code path!  As I said earlier,
the EAGAIN logic in httpd is completely suspect.

Furthermore, as I read it, ap_read_async_request is assuming that it
gets a complete line from getline_nonblocking - which almost certainly
won't be the case.  -- justin
