Having thought about this since I posted my original reply, this kind of
solution does seem more likely, in fact. If losetup is calling an ioctl
that the kernel hasn't heard of, it makes more sense to assume that losetup
is the international version, and it's the kernel that has the problem.

I have the cryptography stuff compiled straight in rather than modular, so
that's why I don't see the problem.
