loop-AES changes since previous release:
- Worked around block layer interface breakage on linux-2.6.36-rc kernels.
- Added workaround for device open/close reference count race. This race
  caused random loop-AES "make tests" failures with "ioctl: LOOP_CLR_FD:
  Device or resource busy" error message. The workaround is in util-linux
  patch (new mount/umount/losetup/swapon binaries). Thanks to Julien
  Moutinho for reporting/testing this problem.

Workaround for device open/close reference count race, for older util-linux
