    smbd: look only at handle readability for COPYCHUNK dest
    This commits sets the stage for a change of behavior
    in a later commit.
    When checking FILE_READ_DATA on the COPYCHUNK dest handle,
    only check the handle readability and not the extra right
    that may have been added due to the FILE_EXECUTE right.
    The check for FILE_READ_DATA always seemed strange for the
    dest handle, which is not read. It turns out that in Windows,
    this check is not done at the SMB layer, but at a lower layer
    that processes the IOCTL request - the IOCTL code has bits
    that specify what type of access check needs to be done.
    Therefore, this lower layer is unaware of the SMB layer's
    practice of granting READ access based on the FILE_EXECUTE
    right, and it only checks the handle's readability.
    This subtle difference has observable behavior - the
    COPYCHUNK source handle can have FILE_EXECUTE right instead
    of FILE_READ_DATA, but the dest handle cannot.
