This change removes the internal buffering sendQueue in ConnectedSocketAdaptor.

This enables a producer sending data into the CSA to mark its linkage synchronous. This allows the producer to create and send data as fast as the socket can handle the data being sent.

This is a legacy bugfix, and can be considered an optimisation.
