There are thousands of *.tcl files, which are not directly executable (no interpreter directive), but have +x flag set.
Accidentially trying to execute them can (depending on currently used shell) lead to problematic situations, even data loss or security vulnerabilities.
Fix: remove the +x flag.

I general, this is not an issue for most files. For example, if someone attempts to execute a readme file, nothing will happen even though it has x permissions. Giving x permission is a system default and unless the umask is set to turn it off or Xilinx explicitly turns it off for a specific file it will be set. Xilinx does not typically restrict any file permissions unless there is a need.
