Userspace can specify a read-only table when creating it.

I don't know if it's working properly at the moment, but some targets
(like dm-delay) are meant to work with a combination of read-only and
read-write devices. 

I don't think the table mode should get changed quite like this: I
think this problem needs wider review, perhaps overlapping with the
problem of checking on the I/O path not just at device open time.
