Oh shit. That probably explains some of why I haven't been able to build 
a working fully-pre-emptable kernel kernel, or any kernel at all on a 
pi3 or a pi4. Despite an "ls -l /dev" showing loop0 thru loop7, a line 
in the install bails out because it can't find loop0, and the resultant 
u-sd card won't boot.  3 short green flashes, a longer one, then dark 
for 3 sec's, repeat till the universe runs down.

Now what the heck do we do?
