That's why I was asking about another way to identify a binary file instead 
using 'seek(SEEK_HOLE)' : do you think that it could possible?

If there is a reasonable (i.e., cheap) way for grep to determine that SEEK_HOLE is buggy for the current file, I suppose grep could do that. Do you know of any such method?

Really, the bug here is in the file system, not in grep. Have you filed a bug with the GPFS maintainers?
