fs/seq_file: fix out-of-bounds read

seq_read() is a nasty piece of work, not to mention buggy.

It has (I think) an old bug which allows unprivileged userspace to read
beyond the end of m->buf.

I was getting these:

    Disabling lock debugging due to kernel taint

This seems to be the same thing that Dave Jones was seeing here:

  https://lkml.org/lkml/2016/8/12/334

There are multiple issues here:

  1) If we enter the function with a non-empty buffer, there is an attempt
     to flush it. But it was not clearing m->from after doing so, which
     means that if we try to do this flush twice in a row without any call
     to traverse() in between, we are going to be reading from the wrong
     place -- the splat above, fixed by this patch.

  2) If there's a short write to userspace because of page faults, the
     buffer may already contain multiple lines (i.e. pos has advanced by
     more than 1), but we don't save the progress that was made so the
     next call will output what we've already returned previously. Since
     that is a much less serious issue (and I have a headache after
     staring at seq_read() for the past 8 hours), I'll leave that for now.
