You can observe with ps that each thread for each mounted loop device
increases the load by 1; here's the output from "ps ax | fgrep loop" on my
Dell Inspiron 5000e:

13 ? DW< 0:28 [loop1]
115 ? DW< 0:57 [loop0]
116 ? DW< 0:58 [loop2]
2816 pts/4 S 0:00 fgrep loop

Since I have 3 image files mounted, that means my Inspiron 5000e has a load
of 3 when it's idle... ;)
