Screen recording demonstrating the issue

Also filed as FB9854642

Reading a file with file.stream() is much slower than repeatedly calling file.slice().

1. Visit https://jsfiddle.net/0hnembvu/21/
2. Choose a large file (~200MB). Observe the progress bar updates smoothly, and the file can be read in ~200ms.
3. Reload the page.
4. Enable the "use ReadableStream API" checkbox.
5. Choose the same large file again. Observe the page becomes unresponsive while reading (the progress bar does not update smoothly) and the file takes much longer to read (~1500ms).
