  Modified files:
    lib/libstand         ufs.c 
  Reset the seek pointer to 0 when a file is successfully opened,
  since otherwise the initial seek offset will contain the directory
  offset of the filesystem block that contained its directory entry.
  This bug was mostly harmless because typically the directory is
  less than one filesystem block in size so the offset would be zero.
  It did however generally break loading a kernel from the (large)
  kernel compile directory.
  Also reset the seek pointer when a new inode is opened in read_inode(),
  though this is not actually necessary now because all callers set
  it afterwards.
