In fs/ext4/crypto.c,

 - writepage
   - ext4_encrypt
     - ext4_get_crypto_ctx
       - crypto_alloc_ablkcipher
     - ext4_page_crypto
       - crypto_ablkcipher_setkey
       - ablkcipher_request_alloc(GFP_NOFS)
       - ablkcipher_request_set_crypt(PAGE_CACHE_SIZE)
       - crypto_ablkcipher_encrypt

 - end_io
   - crypto_free_tfm
