mount: could not find any free loop device

Mount warning "mount: could not find any free loop device" facing while increasing /tmp ?

here is the solution for: losetup

# mount -o loop,noexec,nosuid,rw /usr/tmpDSK /tmp
mount: could not find any free loop device

# losetup -a
/dev/loop0: [0802]:72617509 (/usr/tmpDSK)
/dev/loop1: [0802]:72617509 (/usr/tmpDSK)
/dev/loop2: [0802]:72618319 (/usr/tmpDSK)
/dev/loop3: [0802]:72618319 (/usr/tmpDSK)
/dev/loop4: [0802]:72618322 (/usr/tmpDSK)
/dev/loop5: [0802]:72618322 (/usr/tmpDSK)
/dev/loop6: [0802]:72618323 (/usr/tmpDSK)
/dev/loop7: [0802]:72618324 (/usr/tmpDSK)


# losetup -d /dev/loop[0-7]

# losetup -a

# mount -o loop,noexec,nosuid,rw /usr/tmpDSK /tmp


Done !!!
