Out of interest, what features where you particularly interested in in
dm-loop today? The original motivation was performance and to break the
limit on the maximum number of loop devices (both of which are now
somewhat less of a problem for the main loop driver) so the main benefit
today seems to be to have loopback support as a native dm target
(avoiding the need for two block devices to use loop files).
