seq_file: properly cope with pread
Currently seq_read assumes that the offset passed to it is always the offset it passed to user space. In the case pread this assumption is broken and we do the wrong thing when presented with pread. To solve this I introduce an offset cache inside of struct seq_file so we know where our logical file position is. Then in seq_read if we try to read from another offset we reset our data structures and attempt to go to the offset user space wanted.
