Yes. :)

It's due to this comment in the patch you are replying to:

+       if (!str) {
+               /*
+                * RFC3875 says this must mean "no body", but in practice we
+                * receive chunked encodings with no CONTENT_LENGTH. Tell the
+                * caller to read until EOF.
+                */
+               val = -1;
