(ITS#5814) concurrent access to connections

There is code that accesses c_conn_state and c_struct_state while not adequately
mutex-protected. In most cases, this code basically consists in assertions, so
we risk a core dump because of an assertion on non-mutex protected data. This
is the case (as happened to me) of connection_next().
I have a fix for the case I noticed, with two unhandled asserts (marked with a
FIXME) because I'm not sure whether it's worth to add extra mutexes just to be
able to safely assert, or remove assertions.
Committing the fix; there might be more. Please check.
