I mount a directory from a remote server via sshfs to my zpool partition.  Next I open an encrypted container in the sshfs mounted directory with encfs. Finally, when I attempt to rsync data into the unencrypted encfs mounted container the system immediately throws a Page Fault and totally freezes up.  Even the core dump fails to complete.  This is all the information( from the terminal screen ) of the fault I have.

Fatal trap 12: page fault while in kernel mode
cpuid = 1; apic id = 01
fault virtual address     = 0x0
fault code                = supervisor read instruction, page not present

processor eflags          = interrupt enabled, resume, IOPL = 0
current process           = 1632 (rsync)

panic: page fault

I have tried this on both a zpool and a zpool on top of geli containers and gotten the same page fault every time.

I have previously done this same procedure on Ubuntu and Gentoo servers with no problems.
sshfs <user>@<remote Server>:/home/<user> /mnt/archive

encfs -S /mnt/archive/.crypt /archive

rsync -avzqrpogtu /stuff /archive
