Well, it either needs to be caughtup *or*/and have a busy write queue,
right? Usually that state will be reached very quickly because before
that we're writing data to the network as fast as it can be read from
Also, there's no timeout checks outside that if (caughtup ||
send_pending()) block, so there's not much of a window to hit problems when
that loop isn't entered.
