(optional addition to (data_string *), used by http_header.[ch])
extend (data_string *) instead of creating another data_* TYPE_*
(new data type would probably have (data_string *) as base class)
(might revisit choice in the future)
HTTP_HEADER_UNSPECIFIED has been removed. It was used in select
locations as an optimization to avoid looking up enum header_header_e
before checking the array, but the ordering in the array now relies
on having the id. Having the id allows for a quick check if a common
header is present or not in the htags bitmask, before checking the
array, and allows for integer comparison in the log(n) search of the
array, instead of strncasecmp().
With HTTP_HEADER_UNSPECIFIED removed, add optimization to set bit
in htags for HTTP_HEADER_OTHER when an "other" header is added,
but do not clear the bit, as there might be addtl "other" headers
Even though request headers are per-request, update the proto on the
connection level for trusted (proxy) clients. Note: the proxy must use
each connection only for a single connection from a single client
(typically true in practice), and not for multiple clients.
proto was previously saved on connection level for mod_extforward with
HAProxy PROXY protocol, but did not occur with X-Forwarded-Proto or the
Forwarded request header with proto=...
Before this change, modules which returned HANDLER_COMEBACK could lose
HTTPS=on if the resulting request was for a backend such as mod_fastcgi.
This was reported in mod_rewrite, but could also affect mod_magnet if
MAGNET_RESTART_REQUEST, or mod_cgi with cgi.local-redir = "enable"
"FastCGI behavior different when using rewrite?"
(expansion of buffer_string_lenth() inline function and CONST_BUF_LEN()
macro, which always check for NULL, appears to cause the analyzer to
believe that a pointer might be NULL in cases where it otherwise can
not be NULL)
NB: r->tmp_buf == srv->tmp_buf (pointer is copied for quicker access)
NB: request read and write chunkqueues currently point to connection
chunkqueues; per-request and per-connection chunkqueues are
not distinct from one another
con->read_queue == r->read_queue
con->write_queue == r->write_queue
NB: in the future, a separate connection config may be needed for
connection-level module hooks. Similarly, might need to have
per-request chunkqueues separate from per-connection chunkqueues.
Should probably also have a request_reset() which is distinct from
convert all log_error_write() to log_error() and pass (log_error_st *)
use con->errh in preference to srv->errh (even though currently same)
avoid passing (server *) when previously used only for logging (errh)
quickly clear buffer instead of buffer_string_set_length(b, 0) or
buffer_reset(b). Avoids free() of large buffers about to be reused,
or buffers that are module-scoped, persistent, and reused.
(buffer_reset() should still be used with buffers in connection *con
when the data in the buffers is supplied by external, untrusted source)
provide standard types in first.h instead of base.h
provide lighttpd types in base_decls.h instead of settings.h
reduce headers exposed by headers for core data structures
do not expose <pcre.h> or <stdlib.h> in headers
move stat_cache_entry to stat_cache.h
reduce use of "server.h" and "base.h" in headers
Allowing explicit IPs to be rejected might be useful in situations
where an internal network is to be allowed by CIDR mask, but there are
a small number of untrusted hosts on the network, e.g. hosts behind a
NAT to which some external ports are forwarded.
CIDR masks must be marked "trust", or else are ignored with a warning.

discard from socket using recv MSG_TRUNC on Linux TCP SOCK_STREAM socket
Currently, lighttpd supports only TCP SOCK_STREAM. If UDP SOCK_DGRAM
were to be supported in the future, then socket type will need to be
stored so that MSG_TRUNC is used appropriately for the desired effect.
To find out socket type on arbitrary socket fd:
getsockopt(..., SOL_SOCKET, SO_TYPE, ...)
but better to store it with each listening socket.
