    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[1]

    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:
