limits the size of HTTP request header
Apache has a directive named "LimitRequestFieldSize". It limits the size of the HTTP request header allowed from the client.
lighttpd can also do it.

lighttpd 1.4.x has a hard-coded limit of 64k for HTTP request header, though it will accept slightly larger HTTP request headers if the complete HTTP request header has already been received in kernel socket buffers.
Is there a specific reason for this feature request besides "Apache has this feature"? Default size of kernel socket buffers are typically 64k or larger.
