Subjectloop hang in 2.4.2 solved in 2.4.2-ac5
Dear folks,

Our server was unable to mount or umount loop devices mounting iso
images; the same problem occurred in 2.4.2-pre[34] and 2.4.2: an
absolute disaster for us; we had to reboot to another kernel just to
make initrd images to boot off SCSI, let alone make software available
to our staff and students.

Now 2.4.2-ac5 works beautifully for us. Thank you to Jens Axboe, Andrea
Arcangeli and Al Viro. And Alan for putting it together.
