[PATCH 5.1] zread: read files in 4k chunks

From: Jason A. Donenfeld
Subject: [PATCH 5.1] zread: read files in 4k chunks
Date: Sun, 21 Jun 2020 23:53:28 -0600

Currently a static sized buffer is used for reading files. At the moment
it is extremely small, making parsing of large files extremely slow.
Increase this to 4k for improved performance. This also allows reading
files like /dev/kmsg on Linux, which will error if the read buffer is
too small.
