Works in 2.4.x, thinking of moving part of the cluster to 2.5, but I like
to play with swap over NFS.

root@node01:/etc# /sbin/losetup /dev/loop0 /swapfile
ioctl: LOOP_SET_FD: Inappropriate ioctl for device
root@node01:/etc# uname -a
Linux node01 2.5.59-pa2 #2 Thu Jan 23 00:49:22 EST 2003 parisc unknown
unknown GNU/Linux

Do I need newer tools for playing with 2.5.x on HPPA?
Loopback is compiled into the kernel, no modules, and I can produce the
.config if you would like to look :)

Help is much appreciated. I've trolled a few places but no mention of
this particular problem.
