[kaffe] BufferedReaderTest too strict

Merging classpath and kaffe I noticed that the regression test 
BufferedReaderTest is too strict compared to what the spec says. If you 
mark a reader for n bytes then after some IO calls you call reset, you 
only have to remember the n bytes. This test goes further for some input 
reader JDK is capable to reset after more than n bytes have passed. This 
regression test try to check that but according the API you are not 
obliged. Classpath changed the API to force reset to throw an error if 
you try to reset when more than n bytes have passed. So I'm considering 
to delete some tests in BufferedReaderTest ...

What do you think ?
