Subjectcrypto-loop + highmen -> random crashes in -test11

I get random crashes/corruption/ init kills when I use cryptoloop on
this highmem enabled ppc machine.

Applying the loop-* patches at

seem to fix this problem (at least I did not get any crash due to
cryptoloop in the last 2 days)

Steps to reproduce:

dd if=/dev/zero of=/file bs=1M count=100
losetup -e blowfish /dev/loop0 /file
mkfs -t ext3 /dev/loop0
mount /dev/loop0 /mnt
cd /mnt
dd if=/dev/zero of=bla

gives you nice unpredictable crashes.
