OK, I have fixed above mentioned formatting issues. A patch is attached.

And, about sleeping in loop_make_request(), I have also changed the code in
such way that it defaults to code that may sleep in loop_make_request(). But
non-sleeping code is still present (but not currently used), like this:

#if 1

This new patch does not remove LO_FLAGS_BH_REMAP optimization.

2.4.19-pre3 loop code wanders to loop_get_buffer() and transfer function in
LO_FLAGS_BH_REMAP optimization case.

My version is simpler than yours:

if (lo->lo_flags & LO_FLAGS_BH_REMAP) {
rbh->b_rsector += (lo->lo_offset >> 9);
rbh->b_rdev = lo->lo_device;
return 1;
