Currently, all read variants on DataBufferUtils take an input stream or channel as first parameter. When the last data is read, the channel is closed. This results in a "read-once" flux of data buffers.

However, (most) Fluxes are expected to be subscribed to multiple times, not once. As such, the read methods should take an input stream/channel supplier as argument instead. This allows the channel to be opened for the second time when another subscription comes along.

Using Supplier seems good enough, except that most I/O related methods throw IOException, and Supplier does not allow for exceptions to be throw. Using Callable therefore makes more sense.

Finally, because of type erasure, we cannot keep using a single, overloaded read variant. Instead, we should have readInputStream, readByteChannel, etc.

Affects: 5.0 GA, 5.0.1, 5.0.2
