[PATCH] kernel32: Output a message in GetVolumeInformationW() when device has no read access.

A lot of applications fail to install from CDs or mounted ISO images when Wine does
not return correct volume label from GetVolumeInformation() repeatedly asking to
insert correct disk. Most of the time it happens because the block device is read only
for user (which is typical default behaviour) and FS info cannot be read.
It looks like the hint about what went wrong will simplify things in this common case.
