[Bug 1585434] Re: ecryptfs_decrypt_page: Error attempting to read lower page; rc = [-4]


I think it is possibly caused by steam.  I can recreate the issue, cause
the lines to show in dmesg.  By opening up Steam,  load a game,  then
quit the game,  and then quit steam.  Then the new error lines will be
there.  As I said though it doesn't happen on 3.19 kernel.

  I dont' have this issue showing in dmesg when using 3.19 kernel,  only
  with later kernels.  Is it related to selecting encrypted home on
  install or something?

   I don't notice any issues with performance because of it or have any
  other error messages.  I am using default ubuntu xenial 16.04 with
