What ap_read_request does is:

- a) read the request (parse)
- b) handle the request (make decisions on what to do, internally redirect, rewrite, etc etc)
- c) exit, and let the MPM complete the request in the write_completion phase.

What you want to do is move the request completion into a filter, like mod_cache does. You
start by setting up your request, you parse headers, you do the HTTP2 equivalent of ap_read_request(),
then you do the actual work inside a filter. Look at the CACHE_OUT and CACHE_SAVE filters
as examples.

To be more specific, in the handler that detects HTTP/2 you add a filter that processes the
data, then write an EOS bucket to kick off the process and leave. The filter takes over.

The reason for this is you want to escape the handler phase as soon as possible, and leave
the MPM to do it’s work.
