That is what I meant, however it seems that there is a patch
for the ext(2/3/4) file systems which allows you to mount a
file system under a different  UID.
And as far as I understand ext(3/4) are similar to jfs, so I
don't understand what you mean it does not make sense.

So you could mount an USB system so that all the files have
UID 1001 instead of the original 1000.
