A linearized document is one that start being displayed before it is all read 
in. It is also known as "optimise for web" or similar.

To make a document linearized requires a particular structure (I think the 
main document dictionary needs to be earlier, and some objects are 
re-arranged). I don't know what changes pdfedit makes to "delinearize"
