I see, I had the impression by sdloop(3) that the behavior will be the same
as when you attach a disk device. Knowing This command solved the issue of changing
the sd card, although I suppose this device should be treated as removable device.

Now, diskparts on a sdloop device doesn't configure the plan9 partitions:

; echo config switch on spec l type loop//n/data/plan9/9front-8392.16c5ead832f2.pi3.img!1024 >/dev/sdctl
; diskparts /dev/sdl0
; ls /dev/sdl0
/dev/sdl0/ctl
/dev/sdl0/data
/dev/sdl0/dos
/dev/sdl0/raw

Reading diskparts(8) I noticed partfs(8):

; disk/partfs /n/data/plan9/9front-8392.16c5ead832f2.pi3.img
; ls /dev/sdXX
/dev/sdXX/ctl
/dev/sdXX/data

In this case diskparts does what is expected:
; diskparts /dev/sdXX
; ls /dev/sdXX
/dev/sdXX/ctl
/dev/sdXX/data
/dev/sdXX/dos
/dev/sdXX/fs
/dev/sdXX/nvram
/dev/sdXX/plan9

Was sdloop written for something different I was supposing?
Now that I know of partfs, what is the common use of sdloop?

Last time I used Plan9 (9front) was almost a decade ago, sorry
for the mess.

Regards,
adr.
