seq_file: fix big-enough lseek() + read()

lseek() further than length of the file will leave stale ->index
(second-to-last during iteration). Next seq_read() will not notice
that ->f_pos is big enough to return 0, but will print last item
as if ->f_pos is pointing to it.

Introduced in commit cb510b81

aka "seq_file: more atomicity in traverse()".
