I've reproduced this hang on my side and spent half of my day tracking
this issue. But it looked deeper than I had expected.

Using subrequests issued by echo_location and echo_location_async does
not trigger this hang, but "eval" does. I'm now guessing it has
something to do with subrequests issued from the rewrite phase because
the ngx_echo module starts subrequests in content handlers only.

I don't have enough time to track this further for now. Will get back
to this issue some time later. Sorry.
