OpenJDK11u: Backward incompatible behavior

 > Webrev for JDK15 :
For the update, is it possible that the read() 
implementation interrupted before reading the exact specified bytes of 
data?  The received data may be lost if it is interrupted.

BTW, it might not be effective to use three fields to store the data, 
temporary, header and inputBuffer.  Is it possible to use just one 
buffer (temporary, for example) and one integer to remember the received 
data length?
