Backporting this to 2.4.x is non-trivial since trunk has diverged from 
2.4.x via at least this change to how r->headers_in is handled:

I am not sure how/whether that impacts the backport.

We have a simpler version of the crasher fix which doesn't add strict 
interpretation of the Connection header - I am going to propose that for 
2.4.x.  If somebody wants to propose a backport of r1610674 for 2.4.x 
please jump to it ASAP!

Regards, Joe
