Ignore executable bit when adding files if filemode=0.
If the user has configured core.filemode=0 then we shouldn't set the execute bit in the index when adding a new file as the user has indicated that the local filesystem can't be trusted. This means that when adding files that should be marked executable in a repository with core.filemode=0 the user must perform a 'git update-index --chmod=+x' on the file before committing the addition.
