Actually, unless we want to check/enforce that a Status 304 (as
opposed to a 304 set by ap_meets_conditions) is not followed by a
body, the correct behaviour is probably just to revert this commit

We already ignore the body (when we ought to) until
AP_FCGI_END_REQUEST, and I see no reason to close the connection
underneath the backend if we turn a 200 to a 304, this connection can
even be reused if all goes well.

Enforcing that Status 204/304 has no body is not part of this bugfix I guess...
