The code of current implementation:
if (c->pending == 0) clientDone(c);
In clientDone function, the c's memory has been freed, then the loop will continue: while(c->pending). The memory of c has been freed now, so c->pending is invalid (c is an invalid pointer now), and this will cause memory dump in some platforams(eg: Solaris).
So I think the code should be modified as:
if (c->pending == 0)
and this will not lead to while(c->pending).
