agent: Close pseudo-TCP socket earlier in component_close()

This tries to mitigate the race condition between finishing the TCP FIN
handshake and closing the underlying sockets, but it’s impossible to
mitigate properly without API changes. See the comment.

/* Start closing the pseudo-TCP socket first. FIXME: There is a very big and
* reliably triggerable race here. pseudo_tcp_socket_close() does not block
* on the socket closing — it only sends the first packet of the FIN
* handshake. component_close() will immediately afterwards close the
* underlying component sockets, aborting the handshake.
* On the principle that starting the FIN handshake is better than not
* starting it, even if it’s later truncated, call pseudo_tcp_socket_close().
* A long-term fix is needed in the form of making component_close() (and all
* its callers) async, so we can properly block on closure. */
