Hello Greg!

This and the following two (patches 69 & 70) loop patches are just
preparatory cleanups for commits 0da03cab87e632 "loop: Fix deadlock when
calling blkdev_reread_part()" and 1dded9acf6dc9a "loop: Avoid circular
locking dependency between loop_ctl_mutex and bd_mutex". As such they don't
fix anything and it doesn't make sense to carry them in stable unless
someone backports also the other patches in the series including the fixes
themselves (which honestly I don't think is worth it for stable).
