Just set filesize to -1 then, i.e. unlimited. Don't make up some
arbitrary number. It should just work.

For the last chunk, your patch reads:
which signals the last-chunk (empty). However, this should (if I
understand correctly) be followed by *another* \r\n before the next
HTTP header starts (in a stream if HTTP requests):
[.. end of old HTTP header ..]
Transfer-Encoding: chunked\r\n
HTTP/1.1 200 OK
[.. rest of new HTTP header ..]

 Your patch doesn't skip this and thus only works for the first HTTP
data chunk (DAV servers use multiple in a session).
