I've created 8011136 to track the issues.

We need to be careful of course and work through the implications. I 
think for available() that returning 0 should be okay. The 
skip(negative) issue is harder as the long standing behavior is not 
unreasonable but it conflicts with the behavior specified by both 
InputStream.skip and FileInputStream.skip.
