Follow-up Comment #9, bug #20021 (project lwip):

> We had already talked about this in fact, because the call to 
> tcp_sndbuf is a race condition already.

Might this cause a new set of problems where the tcpip_thread gets blocked
waiting for memory to do operation A, while operation B that could otherwise
go ahead isn't able to get into the tcpip_thread?  The benefits might
outweigh this downside though.  Probably do in fact if there's an existing
race that would also be solved.
