Validations for read mode

      Currently mongo-ruby-driver does not perform any validation on read option to Client constructor. In particular the following is silently accepted:


      Mongo::Client.new([''], read: :nearest) 

      ... but the read setting is ignored since it is treated as a hash.


      Suggested changes are:


      1. Reject read values which are strings and symbols. A stricter check would require the value to be a Hash but this can break clients which pass class instances that are not derived from Hash but implement key access ([]).
      2. If the read option value is a hash or similar object having the :mode key, require that the mode is one of recognized modes.
