Application freezes on access to request.POST under WSGIRequest+multipart/form-data

Reported by: Piotr Czachur Owned by: nobody
Component: HTTP handling Version: dev
Severity: Keywords:
Cc: Triage Stage: Unreviewed
Has patch: yes Needs documentation: no
Needs tests: no Patch needs improvement: no
Easy pickings: no UI/UX: no


==How to reproduce==

  1. runserver
  2. send POST using multipart/form-data encoding
  3. access request.raw_post_data, before request.POST was accessed, for example in first middleware's process_request()
  4. access request.POST -- here application freezes

==Why it happens==

Accessing WSGIRequest.raw_post_data reads data from WSGIRequest.environwsgi.input stream, which afterwards is exhausted.
Accessing request.POST calls WSGIRequest._load_post_and_files(), which calls MultiPartParser.parse(), which tries to parse already exhausted stream from WSGIRequest.environwsgi.input.

How to fix (fix is working, I don't claim it's a good way)

Problem sounds the same as #12522, though proposed fixes are different.
