Okay, this is a real bug, thanks for reporting this!  So ext4_rmdir() sets
i_size = 0, then ext4_empty_dir() reports an error because 'inode->i_size <
EXT4_DIR_REC_LEN(1) + EXT4_DIR_REC_LEN(2)'.  Note that it's actually an ext4
error, not necessarily a panic.  But the fs may be mounted with errors=panic.

This could also be fixed by updating ext4_empty_dir() to allow i_size == 0.  But
we might as well check IS_DEADDIR() in fscrypt_ioctl_set_policy() either way.

Can you please update the commit message to describe the problem, and add:

	Fixes: 9bd8212f981e ("ext4 crypto: add encryption policy and password salt support")
	Cc: <stable@...r.kernel.org> # v4.1+

This seems a bit misplaced given the actual purpose of the check, and the
comment doesn't help explain it.  How about moving this to just before the
->empty_dir() call, so it's only done when actually setting a new policy?
I think that would make it more obvious:

diff --git a/fs/crypto/policy.c b/fs/crypto/policy.c
index d536889ac31bf..4941fe8471cef 100644
--- a/fs/crypto/policy.c
+++ b/fs/crypto/policy.c
@@ -81,6 +81,8 @@ int fscrypt_ioctl_set_policy(struct file *filp, const void __user *arg)
 	if (ret == -ENODATA) {
 		if (!S_ISDIR(inode->i_mode))

+		else if (IS_DEADDIR(inode))
+			ret = -ENOENT;
 		else if (!inode->i_sb->s_cop->empty_dir(inode))
 			ret = -ENOTEMPTY;
 		else

(Then the label below wouldn't be needed, of course.)
