I seem to remember that one has to write the name of the module
before the option, like "loop.max_loop=64", if loop is a module
and not compiled into the kernel. I'm not too sure, but this is
something you could try ;-) 

If it doesn't work, an alternative may be to create a file
/etc/modprobe.d/loop (for 2.6 kernels, it's different for 2.4 iand
earlier) and put into it "options loop max_loop=64".
