don't know how far it goes back,  seen it back to 4.1...
a one line fix...
static int send_file(THD *thd)
uint packet_len;
Should be
   unsigned long packet_len;
bug shows up as a warning on 64-bit amd platform...
(compile warning)
if (net_flush(net) || (packet_len = my_net_read(net)) == packet_error)
second compare will _always_ be false on 64-bit because sizeof(uint) != sizeof(unsigned long)
since packet_error  is ~(unsigned long)0

How to repeat:
not sure when bug will show up

Suggested fix:
