Re: [PATCH] skip apply "ngx_http_upstream_process_accel_expires" when a request responeded by cache

Hello!

In my case, the backend returns x-accel-expires with 304 responses every
time.

nginx calculates valid_sec by "ngx_http_upstream_process_accel_expires" for
any revalidate or HIT responses, thus to get the wrong valid_sec value in
header_filter/log hook handler.
This patch has no impact to every response results, and to be able to get
TRUE valid_sec value in the hook handlers.
