Subject[PATCH] loop: online resize support
This patch introduces new ioctl command LOOP_UPDATE_SIZE
which enables to resize online mounted loop device.

EXAMPLE
=======
# Make 10MB disk image
# dd if=/dev/zero of=image bs=1k count=10k
# mkfs.ext3 -j -F image
# Mount
# mkdir loop
# mount -o loop=/dev/loop/0,debug -t ext3 image loop

# Check disk size
# df -h loop
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/home/mita/looback-test/image
9.7M 1.1M 8.2M 12% /home/mita/looback-test/loop

# Extend disk image to 20MB
# dd if=/dev/zero of=appendix bs=1k count=10k
# cat appendix >> image

# Resize
# gcc -o loop-update loop-update.c
# ./loop-update /dev/loop/0
# ext2online -d -v image

# Check disk size again
# df -h loop
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/home/mita/looback-test/image
20M 1.1M 18M 6% /home/mita/looback-test/loop
