bin/rm rm.1 rm.c
Handle the case where the -P flag is specified for a read-only file
earlier, and more gracefully. Previously, this combination would be
ignored early in the code where permissions are tested and fail later
with a very unhelpful "permission denied" error.
Instead, test for this flag in the same block that generates the
"override?" messages for read-only files, but instead of trying
to guess what the user has in mind, generate an error and exit.
Update the man page to reflect this new behavior.
