sorry for not updating the bug. We know about this.

Fix was expected to be based on top of the Andi's dm-crypt per-cpu
patch but unfortunately I found serious problems there
(see this thread http://lkml.org/lkml/2010/10/20/215 )

So there are now several known situations when dm-crypt doesn't
perform as expected (another problem just appeared when using CFQ,
(because dm(-crypt) lost the issuing process reference)
see http://lkml.org/lkml/2010/10/24/59).
