Re: Kfd, error getting iommu info.

Sorry I can't offer an easier solution.

I did a search on your behalf for that error and I found what you did - creating the file in /etc/udev/rules.d.

Re: owner and permissions become "unknown"?

If you change a folder's mode bits to 664 then it means that it is read/write for the owner/group and read only for others, but you can't enter it.

The folder has the proper content so again either the file is corrupt or the password is incorrect.

After it fails check these: grep libecryptfs /var/log/{syslog,kern.log} and dmesg|grep libecryptfs
