That seems like mempool is NULL in bio_alloc_bioset. That mempool/bioset is destroyed only
when crypt mapping is destroyed, after workqueue is flushed, so it should not happen...

Which command did you exactly run to trigger this? only sync & mkfs on existing
LUKS device or there was also some cryptsetup luksClose (or something removing
mapping) before?

yes, this is dm-crypt or block layer problem. But I read linux-crypto list too:-)
