This can be super dangerous if you use Future. cancel() ie.
Thread.interrupt(). If the interrupt is called while you are reading
from a NIO FileDescriptor the channel will be closed and Lucene can
not recover from that state if the file has already been merged away.
Your Reader will get ChannelAlreadyClosed exceptions for any
subsequent access. You should prevent this.
