filp->f_pos not correctly updated in proc_task_readdir



filp->f_pos only get updated at the end of the function. Thus d_off of those
dirents who are in the middle will be 0, and this will cause a problem in
glibc's readdir implementation, specifically endless loop. Because when overflow
occurs, f_pos will be set to next dirent to read, however it will be 0, unless
the next one is the last one. So it will start over again and again.

There is a sample program in man 2 gendents. This is the output of the program
running on a multithread program's task dir before this patch is applied:

  $ ./a.out /proc/3807/task
  --------------- nread=128 ---------------
  i-node#  file type  d_reclen  d_off   d_name
    506442  directory    16          1  .
    506441  directory    16          0  ..
    506443  directory    16          0  3807
    506444  directory    16          0  3809
    506445  directory    16          0  3812
    506446  directory    16          0  3861
    506447  directory    16          0  3862
    506448  directory    16          8  3863

This is the output after this patch is applied

  $ ./a.out /proc/3807/task
  --------------- nread=128 ---------------
  i-node#  file type  d_reclen  d_off   d_name
    506442  directory    16          1  .
    506441  directory    16          2  ..
    506443  directory    16          3  3807
    506444  directory    16          4  3809
    506445  directory    16          5  3812
    506446  directory    16          6  3861
    506447  directory    16          7  3862
    506448  directory    16          8  3863
