Hey Shuxin,

Hmm...? I'm confused by your comment.

This patch modifies 3 files:
- parsing of "TE" header is done in ngx_http_request.c,
- HTTP/1.1 trailers are handled in ngx_http_chunked_filter_module.c,
- HTTP/2 trailers are handled in ngx_http_v2_filter_module.c.

Are you suggesting that HTTP/2 trailers should be handled in

Best regards,
Piotr Sikora
