RFR [7021870] GzipInputStream closes underlying stream during reading

Hello everybody!

GzipInputStream uses SequenceInputStream to concatenate the underlying 
stream with some data that reside in memory.
SequenceInputStream is implementing in such a way that it closes the 
stream when it reaches EOS.

The solution is to wrap the underlying stream with extended 
FilterInputStream that overrides the close() method.
