Revert "loop: cleanup partitions when detaching loop device"
This reverts commit 8761a3dc1f07b163414e2215a2cadbb4cfe2a107. There are situations where the destruction path is called with the bdev->bd_mutex already held, which then deadlocks in loop_clr_fd(). The normal partition cleanup does a trylock() on the mutex, but it'd be nice to have a more bullet proof method in loop. So punt this more involved fix to the next merge window, and just back out this buggy fix for now. Signed-off-by: Jens Axboe <axboe@kernel.dk>
