  kernel BUG at /build/buildd/linux-3.11.0/fs/buffer.c:1268!; RIP:
  0010:[<ffffffff816e3efd>]  [<ffffffff816e3efd>]

Status in “linux” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  This only happens when aesni_intel is loaded.

  In my attempts to find an easy way to reproduce this bug:
  I actually found a very simple way to trigger a bug that is similar but not identical. I suspect that both bugs have the same cause: something in the kernel is disabling IRQs and the ext4 code will crash when this happens. The stack trace for this bug is different from the other one. This one appears to be less severe, the system is still usable after the crash, only the process that caused the crash will hang (uninterruptible sleep). This bug is 100% reproducible on both Ubuntu 13.10 with kernel 3.11.0 and Arch Linux with kernel 3.12.6.

  The steps to reproduce the bug are based on this:

  * Set up an ecryptfs 'Private' folder in your home directory.
  * In that directory, create a file called 'crashme.c' with the following code in it:
  #include <assert.h>
  int main() { assert(0); }

  * Compile the program:
  gcc -Wall crashme.c -o crashme

  * Change the core dump pattern so core dumps are saved in the current directory:
  echo "coredump-%p" | sudo tee /proc/sys/kernel/core_pattern

  * Enable core dumps:
  ulimit -c unlimited

  * Make sure that you have a second terminal open to run dmesg, because you may not be able to do so later.
  * Run 'crashme' - this will hang and trigger the bug:
