This looks perfect, thank you. It's important enough to be added to
CHANGES, in the server-side bugfixes section, so please add a line
there, for 1.12.0.
The backport process is similar to APR's and I assume httpd's, we use a
STATUS file for nominations with 3 PMC +1 required for core changes. We
have a script for proposing backports, here's an example:
.../repos/1.11.x$ ../trunk/tools/dist/nominate.pl r1845204 "Prevents a crash in mod_http2."

Commit this nomination?
(typing y<enter> will commit, anything else will revert the change to
Our currently maintained branches are 1.9.x, 1.10.x and 1.11.x; fixing a
crash is important enough to backport to all of them. Your vote won't be
binding since you're not a PMC member, but there's nothing wrong with
keeping it there.
Also, please always use the trunk version of the nominate.pl script.
