I suppose we could define a self documented helper
void seq_overflow(struct seq_file *seq)
seq->count = seq->size;
Or if we were counting the approximate number of missing bytes, we could
avoid some iterations of the "double size buffer".
(letting seq->count going above seq->size, but not allowing buffer
overflow of course !)
