Well, I found where that change happened, in 2006:
https://github.com/torvalds/linux/commit/11420211b8123d0e2f71945ad022e8eec28ebfce

But that's not very enlightening, because the file that
the commit message mentions as the reason for the changes
http://www.lanana.org/docs/device-list/devices-2.6+.txt
today says "loopback" there.

So, I dunno :(
