Looking at the code inside the event MPM that calls ap_run_process_connection(), it looks
like you can just do a non blocking read, and if you haven’t received enough bytes, return
DECLINED and expect to be called again.

This presupposes that other connection filters aren’t trying to be excessively cleaver by
stealing your connection away from you and then responding to your data (for example by error-ing
out), which they may do by doing blocking reads.
