The line that causes doFlush to be stuck at true if it gets an exception

First time opening a bug, please forgive me if this report isn't perfect!

I recently ran into an issue where OutputBuffer's doFlush gets stuck to true.

In OutputBuffer.doFlush(boolean) it sets doFlush = true, then calls
bb.flushBuffer, then sets doFlush = false.

I issue I ran into was bb.flushBuffer eventually calls
OutputBuffer.realWriteBytes.  The realWriteBytes eventually calls
coyoteResponse.doWrite.  If coyoteResponse.doWrite throws an IOException, then
it rethrows a ClientAbortException.

What I am seeing is my client disconnecting early, and causing the doWrite to
throw a SocketException of "Broken pipe".  That broken pipe causes a
ClientAbortException to be thrown. 

When that is thrown, the error is bubbled up and doFlush is stuck as "true". 
The next time the processor is used, it calls the recycle() method in
OutputBuffer. However, the recycle doesn't reset doFlush so its still set to

I imagine there are quite a few ways to fix this, but the two obvious ones that
come to mind are:

- Have recycle() set doFlush back to false


- Have throw a finally in try/catch/finally in OutputBuffer.doFlush so doFlush
is set back to false when an Exception is catch
