Immediate IO in ReadFile / WriteFile

As Lawson said, some programs use WaitForComm event to wait for data,
then GetCommError to check how many bytes arrived, then ReadFile to
read it. They then expect ReadFile to return TRUE.
One such program is VBTerm, the visual basic terminal program, or at
least the VBX in it.
Testing applications that use serial ports is difficult, and debugging
often must be done remotely. (eg. send me a trace like this, apply
this patch and send me another trace, etc.)
After making a change, i usually get a terminal program (such as
KoalaTerm) and send a couple of "AT" commands to it... :-)
