Oops, forget to mention that this subrequest B is issued using the
subrequest A's parent request object. The "post_subrequest_handler"
function's implementation looks like this:

    static ngx_int_t
    post_subrequest_handler(ngx_http_request_t *r) {
        rc = ngx_http_subrequest(r->parent, &location, url_args, &sr, psr, 0);
        if (rc != NGX_OK) {
            return NGX_ERROR;
        return NGX_OK;

And yeah, I know this piece of code looks very tricky and I was so
delighted to find out that it actually worked in those previous
versions :)
