cryptsetup starting with 1.3.0 natively supports loop device creation
for kernel 2.6.25 and above.
The Debian package honours this but only for kernel 2.6.35 and above.
This version border can be lowered to 2.6.25 - the cryptsetup changelog
is correct, David's patch went in 2.6.25:
Allow auto-destruction of loop devices
Unfortunately, the chip vendors have delayed the availability of the
long-promised crystal-ball peripherals yet again, forcing the governor
code to rely on heuristics; once again, software must make up for
deficiencies in the hardware. -- Jonathan Corbet, LWN
