Thanks. However, some parts seem not true. I'll change those to the following.

showexec         -- If set, the execute permission bits of the file will be
		    allowed only if the extension part of the name is .EXE,
                    .COM, or .BAT. Not set by default.

sys_immutable    -- If set, ATTR_SYS attribute on FAT is handled as
		    IMMUTABLE flag on Linux. Not set by default.

flush            -- If set, the filesystem will try to flush to disk more
		    early than normal. Not set by default.
