The only way to kick an existing connection is to identify the IP:port
and use TCP control tools to force the connection to die.

The cachemanager system has access to a list of active client
connections. So it should be relatively easy to add a manager action
that locates and kills a client connectivity.
Patches to implement this addition to cachemgr are welcome in squid-dev.
