Speakup and locales

the /sys file system is exported by the kernel as is /proc
kernel interfaces cause files to be created in this file system to which you 
can read and write.
You are not meant to create files in this directory yourself; only read and 
write values to them.
If a file does not exist then the version of speakup is too old to have the 
direct function.

files that exist in /sys/speakup allow you to change speakup's behaviour if 
you write values into certain files.
If the file does not exist then the feature is not present in the kernel you 
currently run.
Regards, Kerry.

I cannot add files to the /sys folder in general.
So I checked the mount options in /etc/fstab; here's what I found:
sysfs          /sys           sysfs  rw,nosuid,nodev,noexec 0  0
Are these options set correctly?
I can replace existing files, but not create new ones. I guess it must
have to do with that "noexec" option.
