Agree. :)

I wish it were this way.  This was the first thing I checked. :)  No, this file
(linux/loop.h) comes with libc6-dev package.  BTW, I also checked util-linux
source package (where mount comes from), and found that it contains some magic:

+++ "loop.h" +++
#include <linux/posix_types.h>
#undef dev_t
#define dev_t __kernel_dev_t
#include <linux/loop.h>
#undef dev_t
--- "loop.h" ---
