      Description

      With the migration of lustre to clio the llite lloop driver's performance advantage over the standard loop back driver disappeared. Also lloop never functioned on non-x86 platforms. With new kernels (4.5+) loop back devices supporting directIO it make even more of a case to delete llite lloop driver.
