no, it works with both.
I am only unsire if it is available on all distributions.

But, hmm, wait. I wasn't completely awake when writing this ;) :

You said, on dom0 you have solved the loop problem, but for some other
reason (that is not xen specific) you need more loop devices _inside_
the domU.
For this, the tap:aio doesn't help, it acts only inside dom0, for
getting the domU started, but has no affect on the number of loop
devices available inside the domU.
