Just install both in one go:

  apt-get install dmsetup livdevmapper

or the equivalent if you downloaded them manually.

Circular dependencies are fine, they just mean that you 
cannot install the packages seperately.

There are two ways of constructing a software design: One way is to make it
so simple that there are obviously no deficiencies, and the other way is to
make it so complicated that there are no obvious deficiencies. The first
method is far more difficult.  --Tony Hoare
