Commit [df0916] Maximize Restore History

tracing: t_start: reset FTRACE_ITER_HASH in case of seek/pread

Be sure to avoid entering t_show() with FTRACE_ITER_HASH set without
having properly started the iterator to iterate the hash. This case is
degenerate and, as discovered by Robert Swiecki, can cause t_hash_show()
to misuse a pointer. This causes a NULL ptr deref with possible security
implications. Tracked as CVE-2010-3079.
