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
