With this patch, I ran across a problem:

parse_tag_3_packet() does not check the return code from
ecryptfs_init_crypt_ctx(). Here is a patch to fix that issue; this
prevents the oops. But reading an encrypted file still does not
work.

Check the return code from the cryptographic context initializer.
