An LSM doesn't get path information related to an access request to open
an inode.  This new (internal) MAY_EXECMOUNT flag enables an LSM to
check if the underlying mount point of an inode is marked as executable.
This is useful to implement a security policy taking advantage of the
noexec mount option.

This flag is set according to path_noexec(), which checks if a mount
point is mounted with MNT_NOEXEC or if the underlying superblock is
