[PATCH] uml: fix fault handler on write

The UML fault handler was recently changed to enforce PROT_NONE protections,
by requiring VM_READ or VM_EXEC on VMA's.

However, by mistake, things were changed such that VM_READ is always checked,
also on write faults; so a VMA mapped with only PROT_WRITE is not readable
(unless it's prefaulted with MAP_POPULATE or with a write), which is different
from i386.

Discovered while testing remap_file_pages protection support.
