8069325: Pattern.splitAsStream does not return input if it is empty and there is no match

This patch fixes an edge case in Pattern.splitAsStream for matching against an empty input string, which deviated from the behaviour of Pattern.split. When there are no matches a stream containing the input string should be returned rather than an empty stream.
I have kept compatibility with Pattern.split(String ) but i noticed another an edge case.
What should the following return:
 or [""]?
There is a zero-width match at the beginning and an empty remaining segment both of which should be discarded, as such i would expect the result to be  rather than as [""], as currently produced result.
If people agree that this is an issue i suggest we log a new one independent of fixing 8069325.
