Package: loop-aes-utils
Version: 2.13.1-3
Severity: important


While the losetup from mount does setup the loop device even if the
specified file is readonly and readonly device was not explicitly
requested the losetup from loop-aes-utils fails in this case.

This breaks existing boot scripts. I can no longer boot my live system
from httpfs unless I apply additional patches to workaround this
incompatibility in losetup.

This might affect other boot scripts and some of the standard
debian-live network boot methods.

I see it might be useful to make the device readwrite and fail when that
is not possible but this is an incompatible behaviour and should be only
turned on when requested by an option.

Thanks

Michal
