I have run into a serious issue (system hang) while trying to create a
luks-based loopback disk. I have reported this issue to Debian here:
That should have most of the technical details you need to start. I
suspect the behavior I'm seeing is very similar to this:
I am now running memtester on most of my VM's available memory and it
is now on loop #3 with no issues identified.
I'm really surprised to run across an issue like this under a stable
kernel, so any advice you could give on how to further debug this
would be greatly appreciated.
