In current code loop_lookup() is called from loop_probe(),
and loop_control_ioctl(). Each of these functions hold global
mutex lock loop_ctrl_mutex with two variants mutex_lock() and

Add lockdep_asset_lock_held() in loop_lookup() to make sure it will
generate an appropriate error message in case of misuse.
