BTW, I _do_ realize that you want a starting point for bisection; I'm sorry this is turning out so messy.

However, the system does not use this swap when it should. For example, if I run a little test code which attempts to allocate 10 GB of memory in 1 GB chuncks, the system hangs with no obvious use of swap. E.g. running top shows no swap use before the hang. However, if I replace cryptoswap by standard swap, it works as expected: allocates the requested memory and exits, using swap. Of course, my disk is slow, so this takes some time but it does work. I originally noticed this problem when compiling a very large application. The system would hang on ld. I've checked hardware using memtest and stress. No problems. This took me days to track down but I'm 99% certain now that the problem is with cryptoswap. If I compile with cryptoswap: hang. If I compile with standard swap: no problem.
