[Patch] PR java/9685: Fix Catching Illegal Access to Package-PrivateFields/Members


    This patch proposes to fix PR java/9685.

Tested on i686-pc-linux-gnu by bootstrapping c,c++,java.
No testsuite regressions, except for the known
InvokeInterface failure that's unrelated to this patch.

Ok for mainline?


1. This still does not fix catching illegal accesses to
   package-private *classes* - only fields/members. That
   needs a separate patch.

2. I chose to create a new function java_acc_ctrl_str
   instead of using java_accstring_lookup, as the latter
   does not return the desired string for package-private
   access. It also returns "bogus" strings if static, etc.
   is also flagged.

3. For not_accessible_p(), the MEMBER argument passed is
   sometimes a TYPE_DECL, that needs the extra check I
   have added. This still does not catch #1 above though. :-(

	Fixes PR java/9685
	* parse.y (java_acc_ctrl_str): New method.
	(not_accessible_field_error): Use java_acc_ctrl_str()
	instead of java_accstring_lookup().
	(resolve_qualified_expression_name): Likewise.
	(patch_method_invocation): Likewise.
	(not_accessible_p): Use DECL_CONTEXT (member) instead of
	reference for package-private access checking.
