have http/2 connections behave properly in async MPMs, e.g. event. One thing for that necessary
as change in server is the hook to send a last GOAWAY frame before the connection is closed.
Not sending it seems to confuse browsers, leading to unwanted failure of the subsequent request.

Keepalive connections are still healthy at this point and pool cleanup happens later, so this
seems to be the place to install a new hook:
>>> AP_DECLARE_HOOK(int,pre_close_connection,(conn_rec *c)) as RUN_ALL
