I still see occasional errors:

[33945.269075] ecryptfs_decrypt_page: Error attempting to read lower page; rc = [-4]
[33945.269084] ecryptfs_readpage: Error decrypting page; rc = [-4]

that are reported as "short read: Success" when doing a "git grep" on an
encrypted repository. Redoing the grep fixes the problems for those files
and may transfer it to others, until all of them are in the cache and the
grep succeeds.

Reproduced with 3.0.3 and 3.1-rc8.
