Default Kernel with loop device support?

I was just wondering if there was a kernel for stock Verizon that supports loop devices? I'm trying to run Arch on top of stock and get "mount: failed to mount Dev/block/loop255 on /data/local/mnt". I figured the stock kernel doesn't have loop support. Couldn't find anything via search either. Thanks!
