I guess it means the kernel won't exec programs on the partition. And
indeed that is the difference between the two statements: the first
tries to run a program (executable type misc, where the interpreter is
determined by the #! magic, and subsequently the interpreter is run with
the program name as parameter) on the partition, the second directly runs
/bin/sh with a parameter which happens to reference the script.
