Excellent - this solved my problems. I stress tested the loopback device
with a big copy and it seemed to work. I also made losetup use open64:

[root@crush mount]# diff lomount.c lomount.c~
< if ((ffd = open64 (file, mode)) < 0) {

>       if ((ffd = open (file, mode)) < 0) {

and gave it a 10GB file. This seems to be working fine as well.
