> Open old index files with read-only permission

>                 Key: KAFKA-5841
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/KAFKA-5841
>             Project: Kafka
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>            Reporter: Jason Gustafson
>            Assignee: huxihx
> Since old index files do not change, we may as well drop the write permission needed
when opening them. From the doc comments in {{OffsetIndex}}, it sounds like we may have had
this implemented at one point:
> {code}
>  * Index files can be opened in two ways: either as an empty, mutable index that allows
appends or
>  * an immutable read-only index file that has previously been populated. The makeReadOnly
method will turn a mutable file into an 
>  * immutable one and truncate off any extra bytes. This is done when the index file is
rolled over.
> {code}
> So we should either support this or (if there is good reason not to) update the comment.
