[fs/fat/]: Refine chmod checks

Prohibit mode changes in non-quiet mode that cannot be stored reliably
with the on-disk format.

Suppose a vfat filesystem is mounted with umask=0 and [not-quiet].
Then all files will have mode 0777. Trying to change the owner will
fail, because fat does not know about owners or groups. chmod 0770,
on the other hand, will succeed, even though fat does not know about
the permission triplet [user/group/other].

So this patch changes fat's not-quiet behavior so that only UNIX
modes are accepted that can be mapped lossless between the fat disk
format and the local system. There is only one attribute, and that is
the readonly attribute, which is mapped to the UNIX write permission
bit(s). chmod 0555 is therefore valid (taking away the +w bits <=>
setting the readonly attribute). Since chmod 0775 and chmod 0755 is
an ambiguous case as to whether to set or clear the readonly bit,
these modes are also denied.

In quiet mode, chmod and chown will continue to "succeed" as they did
before, meaning that a subsequent stat() will temporarily return the
new mode as long as the inode is not reread from disk, and chown will
silently do nothing, not even return the new uid/gid in stat().
