Hotfix for unwanted optimatisation #39

This removes an optimization that changes a while(!usart.available()) {} to a while(true) {} loop when !usart.available() is true. This uses a volatile size_t to store the size and the compiler will always reread the variable if in a said loop.

That said loops like while(!usart.available()) {} should be avoided as they are blocking. A better solution is just checking if new data is available and return if no data is available.
