Okay.

Yeap, the change was intentional.  It was part of effort to make bdev
usages more consistent as before there was no mechanism enforcing ro.
It's still problematic as bdev users can clear ro without consulting
the actual device driver.  Device driver's ->open() is called w/ ro
flag but the resulting bdev can be used rw.  I wanted to remove that
too but filesystems depend on it so maybe later.

Thanks.
