Subject[28/91] loop: handle on-demand devices correctly
2.6.32-longterm review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------
From: Namhyung Kim <namhyung@gmail.com>

commit a1c15c59feee36267c43142a41152fbf7402afb6 upstream.

When finding or allocating a loop device, loop_probe() did not take
partition numbers into account so that it can result to a different
device. Consider following example:

$ sudo modprobe loop max_part=15
$ ls -l /dev/loop*
brw-rw---- 1 root disk 7, 0 2011-05-24 22:16 /dev/loop0
brw-rw---- 1 root disk 7, 16 2011-05-24 22:16 /dev/loop1
brw-rw---- 1 root disk 7, 32 2011-05-24 22:16 /dev/loop2
brw-rw---- 1 root disk 7, 48 2011-05-24 22:16 /dev/loop3
brw-rw---- 1 root disk 7, 64 2011-05-24 22:16 /dev/loop4
brw-rw---- 1 root disk 7, 80 2011-05-24 22:16 /dev/loop5
brw-rw---- 1 root disk 7, 96 2011-05-24 22:16 /dev/loop6
brw-rw---- 1 root disk 7, 112 2011-05-24 22:16 /dev/loop7
$ sudo mknod /dev/loop8 b 7 128
$ sudo losetup /dev/loop8 ~/temp/disk-with-3-parts.img
$ sudo losetup -a
/dev/loop128: [0805]:278201 (/home/namhyung/temp/disk-with-3-parts.img)
$ ls -l /dev/loop*
brw-rw---- 1 root disk 7, 0 2011-05-24 22:16 /dev/loop0
brw-rw---- 1 root disk 7, 16 2011-05-24 22:16 /dev/loop1
brw-rw---- 1 root disk 7, 2048 2011-05-24 22:18 /dev/loop128
brw-rw---- 1 root disk 7, 2049 2011-05-24 22:18 /dev/loop128p1
brw-rw---- 1 root disk 7, 2050 2011-05-24 22:18 /dev/loop128p2
brw-rw---- 1 root disk 7, 2051 2011-05-24 22:18 /dev/loop128p3
brw-rw---- 1 root disk 7, 32 2011-05-24 22:16 /dev/loop2
brw-rw---- 1 root disk 7, 48 2011-05-24 22:16 /dev/loop3
brw-rw---- 1 root disk 7, 64 2011-05-24 22:16 /dev/loop4
brw-rw---- 1 root disk 7, 80 2011-05-24 22:16 /dev/loop5
brw-rw---- 1 root disk 7, 96 2011-05-24 22:16 /dev/loop6
brw-rw---- 1 root disk 7, 112 2011-05-24 22:16 /dev/loop7
brw-r--r-- 1 root root 7, 128 2011-05-24 22:17 /dev/loop8
After this patch, /dev/loop8 - instead of /dev/loop128 - was
accessed correctly.

In addition, 'range' passed to blk_register_region() should
include all range of dev_t that LOOP_MAJOR can address. It does
not need to be limited by partition numbers unless 'max_loop'
param was specified.
