I would say that this misses the point of write permissions. What's the
reason for mkelfImage setting its results read-only in the first place? 
No other payloads have such a behavior. Can you please explain your
decision a little bit? From the outside this definitely looks like
the issue needs to be fixed in mkelfImage.
