Ok, so 2.6.18 used to get along fine with cryptoloop and 2.6.19 refuses to
cooperate. An strace of "losetup -e aes /dev/loop0 /dev/hda7" without all the
terminal interaction shows:

open("/dev/hda7", O_RDWR|O_LARGEFILE) = 3
open("/dev/loop0", O_RDWR|O_LARGEFILE) = 4
mlockall(MCL_CURRENT|MCL_FUTURE) = 0
...
munmap(0xb7fc8000, 4096) = 0
ioctl(4, 0x4c00, 0x3) = 0
close(3) = 0
ioctl(4, 0x4c04, 0xbfc21670) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)
ioctl(4, 0x4c02, 0xbfc215e0) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)
dup(2) = 3
fcntl64(3, F_GETFL) = 0x8002 (flags O_RDWR|O_LARGEFILE)
fstat64(3, {st_mode=S_IFCHR|0720, st_rdev=makedev(4, 1), ...}) = 0
ioctl(3, SNDCTL_TMR_TIMEBASE or TCGETS, {B38400 opost isig icanon echo ...}) = 0
mmap2(NULL, 4096, PROT_READ|PROT_WRITE, MAP_PRIVATE|MAP_ANONYMOUS, -1, 0) = 0xb7fc8000
_llseek(3, 0, 0xbfc21040, SEEK_CUR) = -1 ESPIPE (Illegal seek)
write(3, "ioctl: LOOP_SET_STATUS: No such "..., 50ioctl: LOOP_SET_STATUS: No such file or directory) = 50
close(3) = 0
munmap(0xb7fc8000, 4096) = 0
ioctl(4, 0x4c01, 0) = 0
close(4) = 0
exit_group(1) = ?

Linux 2.6.18 does not fail at

ioctl(4, 0x4c04, ...)

I know that dm-crypt is now the preferred method of doing such things, but as
long as cryptoloop exists in the kernel I'd expect it to work.

Cheers,
