Subject[PATCH] loop: fix to a race condition due to the early registration of device
Date
The early device registration made possible a race leading to allocations
of disks with wrong minors.

This patch moves the device registration further down the loop_init
function to make the race infeasible.

Found by Linux Driver Verification project (linuxtesting.org).
