Subject: bug in 2.6.22-rc2: loop mount limited to one single iso image


I am running Debian Etch 4.0 stable in connection with udev.

In kernel 2.6.22-rc2 the number of available loop mounts is reduced from 8 (conventional standard of preceding 2.6 kernels) to 1.

Symptom: If you try to mount more than one single iso-image with
the loop parameter you are receiving the following message during system boot:

"mount: could not find any free loop device"

Kernel does not show that problem.

Question: Can someone reading this confirm and reproduce that problem?
If yes: Are there any fixes available?

Thanks and Regards
