All other of our mpms in trunk call ap_lingering_close() unconditionally
after ap_process_connection(). So, mod_http2 should be fine there.

mpm_itk, in the latest release at least, also always invokes 
ap_lingering_close() before terminating a connection.

I propose the following patch for trunk and, if it does indeed work 
as expected will propose backport to 2.4.x. Since I do not run a
Windows build, I'd like to hear peoples opinion and need a tester.

Steffen, if you want to try this in your Windows build, I attached the 
file from 2.4.x with the patch applied.
