Oof, how embarassing.  netsec_read() is supposed to RETURN the number
of bytes read, just like read() does (that's why it's return value
is prototyped ssize_t).  But it just returns OK on success.  And we
never had code that used it, so I never noticed (but the documentation
in netsec.h does say what it is SUPPOSED to return).  Also, "buffer"
should probably be unsigned char *.
