Whoops, thanks to Emmanuel for correcting me off-list: that patch
shouldn't introduce any changes in the case seekdir succeeds, so it
shouldn't make any difference in the case seekdir() is willing to accept
an offset.

(It'd still be better to figure out how to get stable directory cookies,
possibly using some other interface, but that's a preexisting problem
not introduced by c65d4ea8a10a).
