[sr-dev] [kamailio/kamailio] Feature request: http_async_query response route to resume execution from memory (#1642)

Http async queries work using the Kamailio tm framework, used by all the
modules exposing async behaviour. A change in this behaviour, which implies
a rework of the whole framework, is not something that can be done easily
and for sure not for a single module.

If a transaction exists before calling http_async_query(), it will be paused and resumed in this route, while the routing script execution will be stopped. If executed in a transactionless context, or if $http_req(suspend) is used not to suspend the transaction, the routing script execution will continue and the query result will be available in “route_name”.
