Hi Binglin,

I think you understand what is going on in this JIRA.  I've been thinking of fixing this myself,
but I won't get to it until after vacation.   If you want to take it instead, feel free.

> The default permission for {{FileSystem#create}} is the same default as for {{FileSystem#mkdirs}},
namely {{0777}}. It would make more sense for the default to be {{0666}} for files and {{0777}}
for directories.  The current default leads to a lot of files being created with the executable
bit that really should not be.  One example is anything created with FsShell's copyToLocal.
> For reference, {{fopen}} creates files with a mode of {{0666}} (minus whatever bits are
set in the umask; usually {{0022}}.  This seems to be the standard behavior and we should
follow it.  This is also a regression since branch-1.
