Hi Jordan,

they all have their (different) issues...
When forced to use Windoze I prefer TeraTermPro, but it has a bug in
its Kermit implementation preventing it from transferring binary files
correctly (the fix is a one-liner, but the license does not allow the
distribution of a fixed version)

Hardware handshake cannot be used on the PXA255 STUART (it lacks the
necessary signals), and AFAIK u-boot does not support Xon/Xoff, so
stick with None.
