If NTEA is activated and an unix attribute stored in it has the
executable flag, real_path.exec_p is certainly set in
symlink_check_one. Then checking executable extentions by
check_executable_p() is skipped in fhandler_disk_file::open.
But I don't think it is preferable to read NTEA only for
skipping such a light function.
If you don't think so, I can't say more.
