If you try to write to a full socket, you'll get a 0 as a result to a
write attempt, and then, you will have to enqueue the data and set the
write_op type so that epoll_wait wakes up when the socket is ready.

When the socket is ready for write, the thread will check the queue, and
will try to empty it. If it succeeds, the write_op is unset and you are
done. Otherwise, the socket is bloked again, and you enter in a new
wait. Of course, never forget to unset the write_op flag, otherwise the
epoll_wait() will exit immediately, and you'll get a busy loop again...
