Yes. But ppos is updated, because pread() reads all siginfo-s from a queue,
which fit in a buffer starting with the initial ppos.

It doesn't need for sys_read(), but this patch is about pread() and
sys_pread() checks it.

SYSCALL_DEFINE(pread64)(unsigned int fd, char __user *buf,
size_t count, loff_t pos)
{
....
if (f.file) {
ret = -ESPIPE;
if (f.file->f_mode & FMODE_PREAD)
ret = vfs_read(f.file, buf, count, &pos);

Thanks for review.
