Could you please include the real reason you need this change.
My guess is, you are seeing this failure.
make -C kmod/ run_tests

I think this is a good idea. At the moment any script without +x fails.
It would be good change to make in the generic layer.

You will have to run it under bash kmod/kmod.sh - It can be painful.
This is one of the reasons a lot of the scripts are executable.
I am curious how you didn't catch this before.
I can take this one. Please fix the change log though. That will
explain why this change is made.
