Did this work before? If so, please can you provide version where
it works?

It is suspend to encrypted swap?

There should not be any recent change in dm-crypt related to this path,
so I expect it is some bug related to suspend/resume in combination with
running crypto - like corruption of some memory caused during suspend...

I assume that crypto run here synchronously (not through asynchronous completion callback).

Herbert - is my guess ok? (The asynchronous handling in dm-crypt was the only part changed recently.)
(And I think that except crypto hw nobody uses asynchronous mode yet by default.)
