I think I will be starting to ask for forward porters for the fixed to 2.4
that need to be ported to 2.6 too.

Well, actually I'd be glad to help. In fact, with this particular 2.4
patch at hand, fixing 2.6 seems incredbly straight-forward (or am I
getting ahead of myself?)
However, I wasn't able to reproduce the bug in my system just by
running losetup under strace. Maybe 2.6.15-1.2054_FC5 has it patched?
If if no one can help me out with this I'll boot into a stock kernel
later and try to trigger the bug again.
