The cause of this problem is me, and I think that it is the bug.
How should this problem be solved? I think that it is either of the

    1) logical sector size smaller than device sector size isn't

    2) read a file data via block buffer (like FAT of 2.2 series).

    3) other (drivers/block/loop.c?)

Please comment.
