There does not appear to be a mount option to get the Linux kernel to
ignore the permissions on ext3 filesystems nor indicate that some
specific user should own all the files. The best you can do currently
is to run find -xdev | xargs chmod a+rwX as root over the filesystem
after mounting, or use another filesystem (adfs, affs, fat, vfat, hfs,
hpfs, ntfs support uid/gid options). The uid/gid options in the
FAT32/NTFS and other filesystems should really become common to all
Linux filesystems, perhaps you would like to persue getting this fixed
in upstream kernels?
