nommu: check fd read permission in validate_mmap_request()
Graff Yang [Tue, 18 Aug 2009 21:11:17 +0000 (14:11 -0700)]
According to the POSIX (1003.1-2008), the file descriptor shall have been
opened with read permission, regardless of the protection options specified to
mmap().  The ltp test cases mmap06/07 need this.
