FLINK-5066 Prevent LocalInputChannel#getNextBuffer from de-serialising all events when looking for EndOfPartitionEvent only
LocalInputChannel#getNextBuffer de-serialises all incoming events on the lookout for an EndOfPartitionEvent.
Instead, add EventSerializer.isEvent so that LocalInputChannel can peak into event buffers without de-serialising the whole event, we could save some resources. This is a generic isEvent implementation for any event that fromSerializedEvent currently supports. Alternatively, a specialised method could be implemented looking for EndOfPartitionEvent only, if desired.
