Please review this clarification of the specification of the method `skip(long)` in `java.io.Reader` and its subclasses. Specifically, the behavior of the method is made clear for the case when the `Reader` is already at the end of its stream when the method is invoked. A corresponding CSR will be filed. Also, the change includes an update to an existing test in order to verify that the specification change reflects actual behavior.
