I think you actually missed a few places where len was also used.

This type of thinking  was  plain  wrong.  You  must  never  use  any
variable without understanding what it's being used for.

The u-boot-testing repo is actually *my* guardian repo where I put all
stuff in that does not fit anywhere else.

As I explained before, you need a  normal  developer's  repo,  not  a

right now, I just need the IP address from where you will connect.
