Actually they are not just 'cracks' - the ceiling beams are lifted by about 75 mm. The whole chamber is slightly distorted and expanded - as if it contained an explosive force.
How would an earthquake expand an internal chamber?
How would it do it selectively - so that the adjacent entrance passage and the extremely complex engineering of the ascending Grand Gallery are in pristine condition. Untouched.
That's a very selective earthquake.

Colonel Vyse found a crack in the ceiling of Davison's chamber. He inserted a reed 3 feet long into the crack and it went through unimpeded. He suspected the presence of another chamber above. Unfortunately, the granite stone was too hard and the chisel's had little effect. He had special workman come in and try their hand but to no effect. Colonel Vyse than decided to use gunpowder. After blasting his way through, he discovered above Davison's chamber another relieving chamber which he named Wellington's chamber.
Colonel Vyse kept blasting away over a period of months and found the other chambers above. Three more were found above the two already discovered.

I think the "grain storage" idea is less crazy than most, but there is so little space in the GP that it really doesn't make sense to think the GP was built to store grain.
