The read() wrapper is gone in my current tree anyway.  (I actually left it
inside a #if 0 as an example for anyone who wants to wrap system calls in
this way.)  It seemed to be causing more harm than good.  I believe the plan
for gcj is to no longer protect pointer-free pages when it can be avoided,
to enable incremental GC only if it can be avoided, and to avoid making
system calls from libgcj that write to the pointer-containing heap.  The
interface to support that is in the latest GC alpha releases.  In this was
gcj should never need the wrappers.
