How did you pass this variable into your subrequest? It looks weird to me :)

I don't think it's a good idea to use subrequests here just for post
body analysis. A rewrite phase or post access phase handler seems
rather sufficient to me.

Passing request bodies to a subrequest is as simple as passing
r->request_body->bufs to sr->request_body->bufs.
