The file shouldn't exist at this point, because Emacs renamed it to a
backup file.  This is what I see here: the first call to _wopen,
without _O_CREAT, fails, and we then call _wopen again with _O_CREAT,
which creates the file.

If during the first call to sys_open the file already exists, then the
problem is not in sys_open, the problem is when the file is backed-up,
which should involve sys_rename.  If you put a breakpoint inside
sys_rename, you should see it called after you type "C-x C-s" to save
the file and answer the question Emacs displays about the file being
write-protected.  Please step through sys_rename_replace and see what
happens there, perhaps the code there fails to detect that the file is
read-only and remove the RO bit before renaming.
