Can you try current git version?

I changed device helpers so loop is now allocated only when it is neccessary
for device-mapper (where block device is always required).

Veritysetup now also create new hash image in format (if not already there).

It still need root privilege (in some command just to initialize DM) but
I think it should works as you need now.

Let me know if it works for you please...
