I see your point, and fair enough, chunked is the way to go for multi 
client requests, brings a question to my mind. my patch delivered the 
data. but if you don't wanna do that, you should at least discard the 
data and never invoke read, (and maybe even terminate the connection)
and this is the problem I'm trying to address, to deliver or not to 
deliver the data I can live with, as you are correct on the content 
length, that was just one part of it, its the loop I'm trying to avoid.
Lets name that problem 1.

Problem 2. If the client aborts its connection while the async servlet 
is writing, we have yet another VM crash.

I believe problem 1 and 2 are all valid problems, and if you don't mind, 
I'll delve deeper into these to see how we can avoid them. I'll provide 
patches for review,
how does that sound,
