The simplest is to use the QCborValue::fromCbor overload that takes a 
QByteArray (your buffer) and QCborParserError. Every time you receive data, 
you try to parse and then you check the error
 - if it's QCborError::EndOfFile, wait for more data
 - if it's QCborError::NoError, remove "offset" bytes from the beginning of 
   the buffer and process the loaded map
 - if it's anything else, give up
