SubjectRe: 2.4.11: mount flag noexec still broken for VFAT partition

It does on FAT filesystems (except UMSDOS), since they don't have real
flags. Files and directories have syntesized attributes of
(0777 & ~umask); noexec is supposed to modify that to (0666 & ~umask)
for files but not directories.

That has been the Linux behaviour since the 0.x days.
