Don't use the PERL_MSVCRT_READFIX when using VC++ 7.x onwards.

VC++ 7.x onwards use their own MSVCR7x.dll, MSVCR8x.dll, etc, rather
than MSVCRT.dll, so they do not require the read() fix.

Therefore, we also don't need to update the ioinfo struct used by the
read() fix w.r.t. VC++ 8.x, so back out that part of change #29218
