Re: 2.4.1-ac5 - The loopback hang saga continues (not me ?)

The same here. I have had no problems with either 2.4.0 or 2.4.1,
and I don't even have the Axboe's patch applied. Which makes me
wonder where is the problem.

I am also using encryption (patch-int-, idea cipher) and
util-linux-2.10o. The container file is not as big, only 256MB
with 65MB of data, and the largest file is ~30MB. I had to
convert from the blowfish and used dump|restore. There were no
problems whatsoever.
