Subject: [PATCH v4 2/3] seq_file: Fix clang warning for NULL pointer arithmetic

From: Arnd Bergmann <arnd@...db.de>

Clang points out that adding something to NULL is not allowed in
standard C:

fs/kernfs/file.c:127:15: warning: performing pointer arithmetic on a
null pointer has undefined behavior [-Wnull-pointer-arithmetic]
                return NULL + !*ppos;
                       ~~~~ ^
fs/seq_file.c:529:14: warning: performing pointer arithmetic on a
null pointer has undefined behavior [-Wnull-pointer-arithmetic]
        return NULL + (*pos == 0);

Rephrase the code to be extra explicit about the valid, giving them
named SEQ_OPEN_EOF and SEQ_OPEN_SINGLE definitions.  The instance in
kernfs was copied from single_start, so fix both at once.

Fixes: 1da177e4c3f4 ("Linux-2.6.12-rc2")
Fixes: c2b19daf6760 ("sysfs, kernfs: prepare read path for kernfs")
