other info that might help us debug this:

Chain exists of:
  &ovl_i_lock_key[depth] --> &of->mutex --> &ovl_i_mutex_dir_key[depth]

 Possible unsafe locking scenario:

       CPU0                    CPU1
       ----                    ----
  lock(&ovl_i_mutex_dir_key[depth]);
                               lock(&of->mutex);
                               lock(&ovl_i_mutex_dir_key[depth]);
  lock(&ovl_i_lock_key[depth]);
