    Use access mode instead of open flags to determine needed permissions
    Way back when (in commit 834f2a4a1554dc5b2598038b3fe8703defcbe467, aka
    "VFS: Allow the filesystem to return a full file pointer on open intent"
    to be exact), Trond changed the open logic to keep track of the original
    flags to a file open, in order to pass down the the intent of a dentry
    lookup to the low-level filesystem.
    However, when doing that reorganization, it changed the meaning of
    namei_flags, and thus inadvertently changed the test of access mode for
    directories (and RO filesystem) to use the wrong flag.  So fix those
    test back to use access mode ("acc_mode") rather than the open flag
    Issue noticed by Bill Roman at Datalight.
