commit a86b6d255187a0a6a91916c14b0da49210fbed91

    Rewrite core upload loop to simplify and fix race conditions.
    The main loop in cryptech_upload:send_file() was much more complicated
    than necessary, and also contained some hidden assumptions about
    serial I/O timing which happened to fail on the first two machines I
    tested.  We already had a perfectly good buffered-input function, so
    rewrote to use that, and simplified control structure in the process.
    In theory, the new code should work in any environment where the old
    one did, but this has not yet been confirmed.
