1) "optimistic write": Push each message to kernel socket buffer immediately.
2) If there is write data at select time, that implies send() blocked
during optimistic write. Drain write queue, before receiving
any more messages.
This avoids needlessly queueing received data, if the remote peer
is not themselves receiving data.
Result: write buffer (and thus memory usage) is kept small, DoS
potential is slightly lower, and TCP flow control signalling is
The kernel will queue data into the socket buffer, then signal the
remote peer to stop sending data, until we resume reading again.
