To make feedback a bit easier, I've done a little torture
test that is available on;a=shortlog;h=refs/heads/windows-writetest

It does the Windows write pattern: 1 byte at the end of a
block, then the rest. It's not yet upstream because it
depends on the not-yet-upstream async cli_write_andx to make
it more independent of network latencies.
