    IIRC, NTFS has the capability to store a posix uid and gid, but it is
    never actually used. There is no good way to get NT to understand
    mappings to linux uid/gids, so the information it puts there is
    useless. As a result, the Linux NTFS driver just makes all files owned
    by a fixed id you can specify at mount time, or defaults to root.
