Do not read away the target directory entry when encountering deleted
files after a seekdir().

The seekdir shall set the position for the next readdir operation.
When the _readdir_unlocked() encounters deleted entry, dd_loc is
already advanced. Continuing the loop leads to premature read of
the target entry.
