Subject[PATCH] max_loop limit
Hi,


here's one. Allocates all the fluff dynamically. It does not create any
dev nodes by itself, so you need to do it (à la mdadm), but you'll get all
1048576 available minors.

Sadly, it locks up the foreground process (losetup that would be), and I
have not yet figured out why. And the mpt regression elsewhere is
hindering me in finding out faster.
