Strings like this are the exception to the 80 character rule. People
grep for them, and when they are split, they are harder to find.

This seems counter intuitive. We don't need byte IO because we are
doing btye IO? Can we return True here?

Is the loop needed?

I also wonder if on the last iteration of the loop you go passed the
end of buf? Don't you need a min(block_size -1, len - i) or
similar?

Did we loose the comment:

/* Some modules (Nokia 3FE46541AA) lock up if byte 0x51 is read as a
* single read. Switch back to reading 16 byte blocks ...

That explains why 16 is used. Given how broken stuff is and the number
of workaround we need, we should try to document as much as we cam, so
we don't break stuff when adding more workarounds.
