Why not just hook the loopback driver up to copy_file_range() so
that the backend filesystem can just reflink copy the ranges being
passed? That would enable testing on btrfs, XFS and NFSv4.2 hosted
image files without needing any special block device setup at all...

i.e. I think you're doing this compeltely backwards by trying to
target non-existent hardware first....

Cheers,

Dave.
