Do we really need a rhashtable_walk_peek() interface?
I imagine that a seqfile ->start function can do:

if (*ppos == 0 && last_pos != 0) {
rhashtable_walk_enter(&table, &iter);
last_pos = 0;
if (*ppos == last_pos && iter.p)
return iter.p;
last_pos = *ppos;
return rhashtable_walk_next(&iter)

and the ->next function just does

last_pos = *ppos;
*ppos += 1;
do p = rhashtable_walk_next(&iter); while (IS_ERR(p));
return p;

It might be OK to have a function call instead of expecting people to
use iter.p directly.

static inline void *rhashtable_walk_prev(struct rhashtable_iter *iter)
return iter->p;
