other info that might help us debug this:

Chain exists of:
  &type->i_mutex_dir_key#10 --> &sbi->lock --> sb_writers#17

 Possible unsafe locking scenario:

       CPU0                    CPU1
       ----                    ----
  rlock(sb_writers#17);
                               lock(&sbi->lock);
                               lock(sb_writers#17);
  lock(&type->i_mutex_dir_key#10);
