Hmm.... the only thing I can think of is to sprinkle in some

        WARN_ON(irqs_disabled());

calls in various top-half routines in ext4 code, especially in
ext4_lookup() and ext4_find_entry(), and perhaps in the vfs layer to
see if we can figure out where the interrupts are getting disabled.
The fact that blkcipher_walk_done() was showing up in the stack trace
is certainly suspicious.
