> Unlike the other block readers, BlockReaderLocal currently doesn't return -1 on EOF when
doing zero-length reads.  This behavior, in turn, propagates to the DFSInputStream.  BlockReaderLocal
should do this, so that client can determine whether the file is at an end by doing a zero-length
read and checking for -1.
> One place this shows up is in libhdfs, which does such a 0-length read to determine if
direct (i.e., ByteBuffer) reads are supported.
