Right. Sigh.
cgit apparently does not craft a Content-Length header, and the TLS
layer over the web server does not use close_notify to
end connections. So there's a conflict here.

I cannot use close_notify without basically reworking the whole stack,
so that's a no-go. I will look into cgit to see if it's possible to
make it always send a Content-Length, but that will have to wait for
a few weeks.

In the meantime, please don't use the https transport for your git
clone. Or, if you have to, use the github mirror. Sorry about that.
