io: fix cr_file_match_file matching only the last block.

With each iteration of the loop, `match` was unconditionally reassigned
to whatever the return of `!memcmp(buf1, buf2, read1)` was. This causes
the result of comparing previous blocks to be overwritten without being

This PR exits the loop early as soon as a difference is found.

This case isn't trivial to test since it requires files larger than a
block (512o) to be matched. I have tested it locally by manually setting
the buffer sizes to 2 and with smaller files.
I don't know how to add tests for it alongside existing tests in this
project but would gladly do it if provided guidance.
