PUSH_PROMISE does not have an END_STREAM flag.

However, a sender might emit a PUSH_PROMISE followed by a CONTINUATION
with the END_STREAM set. As specified, this ends the stream.

I think that we need to either prohibit this, or we add END_STREAM to
PUSH_PROMISE.  I don't care which.  Bike shed... go!
