Subjectfloppy regression from "[PATCH] fix floppy.c to store correct ..."

Commit 88baf3e85af72f606363a85e9a60e9e61cc64a6c:

"[PATCH] fix floppy.c to store correct ro/rw status in underlying gendisk"

causes an annoying side-effect. Upon first write attempt to a floppy I get

$ dd if=bootdisk.img of=/dev/fd0 bs=1440k
dd: writing `/dev/fd0': Operation not permitted
1+0 records in
0+0 records out

Any successive attempts succeed without problem. Confirmed that backing
out the patch fixes it.
