8230342: LineNumberReader.getLineNumber() returns inconsistent results after EOF

When the last line is read by readLine() the line number is incremented due to the EOF but not when read() or read(char[]) is used. The specification states it is incremented on line terminators only. The alternative solution would be to change the specification to state that the line number is also incremented on EOF even if there is no line terminator at the end of the stream. That would entail a different implementation change.
