Subject[patch 37/53] seq_file: move traverse so it can be used from seq_read
2.6.28-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.
------------------
From: Eric Biederman <ebiederm@xmission.com>

commit 33da8892a2f9e7d4b2d9a35fc80833ba2d2b1aa6 upstream.

In 2.6.25 some /proc files were converted to use the seq_file
infrastructure. But seq_files do not correctly support pread(), which
broke some usersapce applications.

To handle pread correctly we can't assume that f_pos is where we left it
in seq_read. So move traverse() so that we can eventually use it in
seq_read and do thus some day support pread().
