in thread IO::Lambda: call for participation

It needs to be passed in the context because the dispatch engine needs to know about $socket so it knows when to dispatch to the closure. $socket also needs to be available in the closure, so the easiest way to do that is to make it part of the closure. However if you want the context is also available in @_. It just takes more work to get it from there.
