dm-crypt flush-to-disk freezes



Hi all,

now I have been hit with a flush-to-disk problem. 

The set-up is a dm-crypt partition with a Windows XP 
VM and the current VMplayer, all with kernel 2.6.34.4
from kernel.org and current vmware-tools in the VM.

The XP in the VM (which I use when I cannot avoid 
working with Word) frequently hangs for single digit
seconds, on what seems to be flushes-to-disk. 

Moving the VM to an unencrypted partition cures the 
problem, but as I work on confidential stuff, I would 
rather have it encrypted. 

What is the current take on this problem? Any fix 
known or expected for the near future?

Thanks for any insights.

Arno
