In Java it is legal to widen access when overriding a method, so ikvmc can
generate assemblies that contain classes that do this.

When mcs encounters a C# class that overrides a public method (with a public
method) it should accept this instead of considering the protected method in
some base class.

See attached repro. Note that the repro contains an intermediate class
(__WorkaroundBaseClass__.test) that is a workaround for a related bug in csc,
but this workaround doesn't work (or affect) the problem with mcs.

Note that this is a showstopper for IKVM compilation on Mono, because the Sun
AWT toolkit uses this construct.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. ilasm /dll test.il
2. mcs test.cs -r:test.dll 

Actual Results:  
test.cs(11,24): error CS0507: `test1.foo()': cannot change access modifiers
 overriding `protected internal' inherited member

Expected Results:  
Successful compile.


public class test1 : test
  public override void foo() { }
