Yes, I don't see an alternative to implementing skip ourselves.  The 
optimization in InputStream#skip(), of using a static buffer, requires 
this.  Hopefully this method, like much of the checksum code, will be 
shared between the generic ChecksumFileSystem and DFS's optimized 
checksum implementation.
