What about a much simpler one-liner fix:

--- a/sql/sql_repl.cc
+++ b/sql/sql_repl.cc
@@ -2549,6 +2549,7 @@ static int send_events(binlog_send_info *info, IO_CACHE*
       return 1;

     info->last_pos= linfo->pos;
+    log->end_of_file= end_pos;
     error= Log_event::read_log_event(log, packet, info->fdev,
                        opt_master_verify_checksum ? info->current_checksum_alg
                                                   : BINLOG_CHECKSUM_ALG_OFF);

It doesn't change IO_CACHE structure and doesn't add any
overhead to the IO_CACHE.

Did you already test that your commit actually fixes the issue?
