other info that might help us debug this:

Chain exists of:
  &type->i_mutex_dir_key#6 --> &sbi->lock --> sb_writers#9

 Possible unsafe locking scenario:

       CPU0                    CPU1
       ----                    ----
  lock(sb_writers#9);
                               lock(&sbi->lock);
                               lock(sb_writers#9);
