    Subjectbug in 2.6.22-rc1: loop devices limited to one single device
    Hi,

    The patch against loop.c is neither a fix, nor does it create
    loop devices on demand:

    Facts are instead, at least on my machine:

    The number of available loop devices is reduced from 8 (conventional
    standard of preceding 2.6 kernels) to 1.

    The consequence is: If you have to mount more than one single iso-image with
    the loop parameter you are receiving the following message during system boot:

    "mount: could not find any free loop device"

    Regards

    Uwe
