It often retains the reference to the buffer calling compact() and
flip().  It sometimes replaces the buffer received from the previous
filter in the chain.  It's because the decoder implementation is
optimized to minimize memory copy.  So you can't assume about its
internal behavior.  Please do not try to modify the content of the
buffer (e.g. calling buffer.compact()); MINA will do that for you.
Plus, please do not assume that the buffer's position is always 0.  It
can vary depending on situation.
