My idea behind is, that in case of malformed length 1 a consecutive call to the decode loop would 
again return another malformed length 1, to ensure 2 replacement chars in the output string. (Not 
sure, if that is expected in this corner case.)

You must see the b1 < -0x3e in combination with the following b1 < -0x20. ;-)

But now I have a better "if...else if" switch. :-)
- saves the shift operations
- only 1 comparison per case
- only 1 constant to load per case
- helps compiler to benefit from 1 byte constants and op-codes
- much better readable

                 byte b1 = sa[sp]; // help compiler to benefit from 1 byte op-codes and constants
//                byte b1 = src.get();// help compiler to benefit from 1 byte op-codes and constants
Byte1Switch:    if (b1 >= 0) {
                     // 1 byte, 7 bits: 0xxxxxxx
                     ...return x;
                 } else if (b1 < (byte)0xe0) {
                     // 2 bytes, 11 bits: 110xxxxx 10xxxxxx
                     if (b1 < (byte)0xc2) // b1 < C2 not legal
                         break Byte1Switch;
                     ...return x;
                 } else if (b1 < (byte)0xf0) {
                     // 3 bytes, 16 bits: 1110xxxx 10xxxxxx 10xxxxxx
                     ...return x;
                 } else if (b1 < (byte)0xf8) {
                     // 4 bytes, 21 bits: 11110xxx 10xxxxxx 10xxxxxx 10xxxxxx
                     ...return x;
                 return malformed(src, sp, dst, dp, 1);
//                return malformed(src, mark, 1);

At the moment I don't have a well running system, so my contribution must remain limited. :-(

About motivation:
For me it's kinda frustrating, seeing a bug from external voluntary contributor as "Will Not Fix", 
but some time later an Oracle employée creates an "equivalent" new bug from scratch without at least 
referring to the existing ones, e.g.: 6798514, 6795537.

Additionally I think, now it's the right time to re-evaluate bug 4508058 - UTF-8 encoding does not 
recognize initial BOM.
