I was just busy setting this up, when I read that. Can you explain a bit
more about your kernel version, loop-aes version and specific kernel oops?
I am setting this up because I want to make use of suspend2 with an
encrypted swapfile, and perhaps encrypted root as well (some day or never).

( it's all pretty much explained here: )

I wouldn't like to hear that this is a simple no go on a HLFS system,
but I would like to know before spending more time on this :-) .
Currently I am using with loop-aes 3.1d, if that matters at all.

Cheers, Warren
