        Description

        Consider adding a blocking variant of readNBytes(int) that allocates
        the byte[] of up to "len" length internally and returns it. The method should be a suitable replacement for the internal sun.misc.IOUtils.readFully.

        sun.misc.IOUtils is a JDK internal convenience utility class that
        provides a single method that offers bulk blocking InputStream read
        semantics.

        There are a number of places, mainly in the security implementation,
        that required to read a specific number of bytes ( not to end of
        stream ), where it is preferable to not preallocate the byte[] and
        allow it to "grow" lazily, to be defensive against protocol errors.
        These cases cannot use read[N|All]Bytes.
