Subject: [Bug 105121] lseek(SEEK_DATA) hangs for a long time for sparse files
 in the page cache

A person was wondering why cat|grep works faster than grep file on usual files
and his test case involved creating file with fallocate and cat it before
grepping. He was apparently used btrfs and had 2 seconds difference while it
hang for me as grep does literally what's in the attached source.
