When using "losetup" the device is always setup as Read-Only.

(I have only tested with the -o flag, but looking at the code the
 problem seems general)

The problem is the "opt" variable in "losetup.c" that is reused in
the "set_loop()" call. Clear it before the call and everything is OK;

  opt = 0;         /* <-------- added line */
  if (delete)
    return del_loop (argv[optind]) ? EXIT_SUCCESS : EXIT_FAILURE;
    return set_loop (argv[optind], argv[optind + 1], offset, &opt)
