When the poll() is hit in send_brigade_blocking() it means the core output
filter ought to block, because we don't want unbounded buffering.

Suppose a handler keeps sending data out, when the socket becomes full we must
stop buffering soon or later (i.e. above THRESHOLD_MAX_BUFFER or something
configurable which is the point of attachment 35427, among other parameters).

Otherwise it's unbounded memory usage.
