From the GNU LibC Manual the pkey_set can receive a combination of
PKEY_DISABLE_WRITE and PKEY_DISABLE_ACCESS.  However PKEY_DISABLE_ACCESS
is more restrictive than PKEY_DISABLE_WRITE and includes its behavior.

The test expects that after setting
(PKEY_DISABLE_WRITE|PKEY_DISABLE_ACCESS) pkey_get should return the
same.  This may not be true as PKEY_DISABLE_ACCESS will succeed in
describe the state of the key in this case.

The pkey behavior during signal handling is different between x86 and
POWER.  This change make the test compatible with both architectures.

Hi,

This test still needs the patch on the link to work on POWER.
https://sourceware.org/ml/libc-alpha/2018-05/msg00760.html

in V2:
	- Fix signal handling expectations to accept x86 and POWER behavior.

“glibc manual” or “GNU C Library manual”.

Please reference [BZ #23202] in the commit message.

Okay.

Please add a comment explicitly describing the POWER and x86-64
behaviors.  Thanks.
