The x bit shouldn't matter.

If someone downloads and applies patch-5.9.xz (which is a supported way
of obtaining a kernel) then patch(1) will erase the x bit anyway.

Is some other script invoking spdxcheck-test.sh directly, instead of
using `/bin/sh spdxcheck-test.sh'?  If so, please let's fix that.
