 Log Message:
 68030 and 68040 processors consider the read portion of a read-modify-write
 transfer as a write to ensure the memory is writable before starting any
 transfer.  The fault status information does not reflect this in the 'read'
 status bit (i.e. it shows up as a read access), so faults with a RMW access
 to non-writable memory was not getting the correct protection.  The page would
 be read-only and the instruction would fault over and over.
 A specific example is when a process forks, and the child process attempts
 to execute a RMW access to a data page, which is read-only because it's CoP
 When checking if the page needs to be writablek, also check the locked transfer
 and treat any locked transfer as a write.
 68060 already handled this correctly, since it has separate read and write
 fault bits, and both are set on a RMW access and the trap code was checking
 the write status bit.
 Fixes PR#36848.
