hey Jason -

SETTINGS_TIMEOUT is a connection error - so all streams and the session
need to be torn dorn. There is really nothing to ack at that point.. any
non-idempotent transactions in flight are retried (where possible) on
another connection only if the last-stream-id in the goaway indicates its
safe to do so. Basically its handled exactly like a PROTOCOL_ERROR
