Subject mod_include/7636: [PATCH] byterange on SSI puts excess buckets after error response
Date Mon, 07 May 2001 21:48:00 GMT

After some investigating, I finally came up to a patch that is small enough
to remedy the problem;
but this is really a hack. This patch only fixes those filter chain stops
by an error bucket.

The Real Solution probably is to
. objectify output_filter chain (not relying on (ap_filter_t*)f->next )
. don't reuse the output_filter chain (by reset_filters()) for error response
. provide a way to notify upstream filters that the chain has stuck

Some filters, including mod_include filter doesn't check the return
of ap_pass_brigade(), so we couldn't rely on returning errors from
intermediate filter; upstream filters still try to push on.

#****** modules/http/http_protocol.c SSI/Range excess bucket elimination patch
# When using byterange requests on SSI documents,
# the SSI(INCLUDE) filter tries to push on things even after
# the byterange filter passed down the error bucket.
# This patch will nullify all (ap_filter_t*)f->next in reset_filter()
# on reusing filter chain for error response,
# which will disable existing filters including the upstream INCLUDE
# filter, pass down excess things via ap_pass_brigade().
# This is a hack; not all filter-chain-stuck circumstances may
# come to ap_send_error_response()->reset_filters() process.
