Right, but I was testing Win2K against NT. I know that we will fail this
test, as discussed on IRC because the POSIX open call does not allow you
to specify O_EXEC ... so I will need to do other checks here. However,
since our NFS code needs to check for X access, I can probably piggy back
on this with an IOCTL. UGLY.
We should probably have a torture test for this.
