floppy: reintroduce O_NDELAY fix

This issue was originally fixed in 09954bad ("floppy: refactor open()
flags handling").

The fix as a side-effect, however, introduce issue for open(O_ACCMODE)
that is being used for ioctl-only open. I wrote a fix for that, but
instead of it being merged, full revert of 09954bad was performed,
re-introducing the O_NDELAY / O_NONBLOCK issue, and it strikes again.

This is a forward-port of the original fix to current codebase; the
original submission had the changelog below:

Commit 09954bad ("floppy: refactor open() flags handling"), as a
side-effect, causes open(/dev/fdX, O_ACCMODE) to fail. It turns out that
this is being used setfdprm userspace for ioctl-only open().

Reintroduce back the original behavior wrt !(FMODE_READ|FMODE_WRITE)
modes, while still keeping the original O_NDELAY bug fixed.
