    Known problem.

    Go

    ftp://ftp.kernel.org/pub/linux/people/axboe

    and take the latest loop-? patch from there. Let Jens Axboe know if it works
    or if you still have problems. Particularry, if you can reliably reproduce
    the problem you referred.

    I hear the patch should get merged to 2.4.1ac soon.

    And, your address zole@diamondhead.hesbynett.no does not work. I'm kinda
    puzzled about how you expect people to reply you. With smoke signals?
