Subject[PATCH 4/9] readahead: quick startup on sequential mmap readahead
When the user explicitly sets MADV_SEQUENTIAL, we should really avoid the slow
readahead size ramp-up phase and start full-size readahead immediately.

This patch won't change behavior for the auto-detected sequential mmap reads.
Its previous read-around size is ra_pages/2, so it will be doubled to the full
readahead size anyway.
