In 2.4.35 (commit b1da555c4c7275d7f756d693c42814388a9aa839) code was added to
unconditionally turn off readahead, because it is harmful to random read
performance when a DB is larger than RAM and/or system RAM is already full.
Unfortunately turning it off harms sequential read performance. It should be
configurable, since different behaviors are needed in different use cases.
