I was able to reproduce it with the .config you attached, and running it in kvm. It is caused by: "modprobe cryptomgr" called from swapper This modprobe process does try to log an error, accesses /dev/console, which is not initialized in the kernel at that time, and the kernel module loader tries the load a module to support dev_t 5:1, which again runs modprobe, and ... Setting CONFIG_CRYPTO_MANAGER=y makes it disapper. The patch I sent seems to fix it. The bug is handled here: http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=12153 Thanks, Kay
