(e.g. when called from xinetd)
Note: lighttpd is designed as a high performance, long-running server,
not a one-shot executable. This one-shot mode of operation has not been
tuned for performance. lighttpd server start-up and initialization aims
for correctness, not speed. If using this one-shot mode as part of fork
and exec from xinetd, then performance is already not of high concern.
"support for xinetd"
no code changes besides making connection_handle_read() public
(by removing 'static' and adding to connections.h)
read request body right before calling subrequest handler,
allowing request to be handled prior to reading request body,
e.g. to send 401 Unauthorized response when authentication is required
(In the future, this might move into each dynamic handler which supports
request body (mod_cgi, mod_fastcgi, mod_proxy, mod_scgi, mod_webdav) so
that each dynamic handler can choose whether or not to buffer request
body or to stream request body to backend as request body is received.)
keep-alive is disabled if request body has not been completely read
prior to sending response
"HTTP 401 Unauthorized only sent back after full POST request is read"
