Since r10, JSHint does not report a "Read only" error anymore for code that overrides a read-only global variable. Using /*globals */ in the source file still works.

Example configuration:

{"undef": true, "predef": {"foo": false}}

Example code:

foo = {};

JSHint <= r09 reports an error, r10 .. r12 does not.

Fixed a regression with predef making all globals read/write.
When implementing blacklisted globals we introduced a bug where
globals assigned through predef would always be writeable. This
commit fixes that.

Closes jshintGH-665.
