Git does not preserve file permissions _except_ for the executable bit.
So this should be working.

However, I suspect that `core.fileMode` is set to `false` in your
repository, which causes git to ignore the executable bit. When a
repository is initialized, we check whether the filesystem simply
creates everything with the executable bit. If so, we turn off
core.fileMode for the repository (since otherwise every file would have
it set).
