    SubjectRe: all files are executable in vfat
    I also faced this  litte problem.

    I could live with this solution.

    I could also live with a dmask option. But then it would be great to have
    this option with every file system not only vfat.

    This i my preferred solution. I cannot image a situation where it is useful,
    to have a execution flag on all files, if the file system has a noexec flag.
    But I see a lot of problems, like the Midnight Commander Logic.
    On the other side, it is quite sensible to remove the execution flags from a
    file if you cannot execute them.
