Best way to throw away unwanted data in a plugin element

My element is processing a file in push mode. The first buffer it handles
contains a header block which contains the offset to the data to be sent
downstream. The offset is not known in advance and may point to data beyond
the first n buffers. Is it possible to throw away the first n buffers
without gstreamer (0.10) aborting the pipeline?Regards,  Martin.
