dmsetup is just low level tool, you need to know all table parameters
while veritysetup will prepare table for you using high level commands
and on-disk metadata (if present).

Be sure you are using proper parameters, metadata version etc.

Try activate device with veritysetup, then run "dmsetup table" and
check what is different in your dmsetup line.

By corrupting the image? :) See tests/verity-compat-test in cryptsetup
tree, it is basic regression test which is simulating both data and hash
corruption (it just dd random data to know offset and expects failure.)
