I tested your patch and it works like a charm! Tested it a number of
times, based on the number of bytes received, only the hashes and
modified blocks where transferred. Also did a sha256sum on both devices
after every attempt, just to be sure, and they matched every time.
One very minor visual glitch is that the %process is still stuck at
-2147483648% (I guess min signed int) during the transfer. But this is
just a visual thing, doesn't impact the transfer.
