    SubjectRE: PATCH: allow percentile size of tmpfs (2.5.66 / 2.4.20-pre2)
    Date

    I presume the below was a typo and In the second mount it should be

    "mount -t ext2 -o loop /mnt/tmp/A /mnt/loopback"

    instead of just

    "mount -t ext2 -o loop /mnt/tmp /mnt/loopback"

    Else wise the directory name "/mnt/tmp" would most certainly be a bad target
    for a loopback mount.

    Rob.

    mount -t tmpfs tmpfs /mnt/tmp
    extract file A to /mnt/tmp/A
    mount -t ext2 -o loop /mnt/tmp /mnt/loopback

    You'll get "ioctl: LOOP_SET_FD: Invalid argument".
