This reverts commit 5b12e3123b (progress: use term_clear_line(),
2019-06-24), because covering up the entire last line while refreshing
the progress line caused unexpected problems during 'git
clone/fetch/push':

  $ git clone ssh://localhost/home/szeder/src/tmp/linux.git/

The length of the progress bar line can shorten when it includes
throughput and the unit changes, or when its length exceeds the width
of the terminal and is broken into two lines.  In these cases the
previously displayed longer progress line should be covered up,
because otherwise the leftover characters from the previous progress
line make the output look weird [1].  term_clear_line() makes this
quite simple, as it covers up the entire last line either by using an
ANSI control sequence or by printing a terminal width worth of space
characters, depending on whether the terminal is smart or dumb.

Unfortunately, when accessing a remote repository via any non-local
protocol the remote 'git receive-pack/upload-pack' processes can't
possibly have any idea about the local terminal (smart of dumb? how
wide?) their progress will end up on.  Consequently, they assume the
worst, i.e. standard-width dumb terminal, and print 80 spaces to cover
up the previously displayed progress line.  The local 'git
clone/fetch/push' processes then display the remote's progress,
including these coverup spaces, with the 'remote: ' prefix, resulting
in a total line length of 88 characters.  If the local terminal is
narrower than that, then the coverup gets line-wrapped, and after that
the CR at the end doesn't return to the beginning of the progress
line, but to the first column of its last line, resulting in those
repeated 'remote: <many-spaces>' lines.

By reverting 5b12e3123b (progress: use term_clear_line(),
2019-06-24) we won't cover up the entire last line, but go back to
comparing the length of the current progress bar line with the
previous one, and cover up as many characters as needed.

[1] See commits 545dc345eb (progress: break too long progress bar
    lines, 2019-04-12) and 9f1fd84e15 (progress: clear previous
    progress update dynamically, 2019-04-12).
