None of them should be called again with the same data when success has been
returned and some amount of data has been sent off.

The SCP and SFTP examples are pretty similar in this aspect and show this.

In the SFTP upload case, an application will even work faster if it
"top-fills" the buffer and passes in 200K in the subsequent call again (if
there is more data to send).
