other info that might help us debug this:

Chain exists of:
  &sig->cred_guard_mutex --> sb_writers#3 --> &pipe->mutex/1

 Possible unsafe locking scenario:

       CPU0                    CPU1
       ----                    ----
  lock(&pipe->mutex/1);
                               lock(sb_writers#3);
                               lock(&pipe->mutex/1);
  lock(&sig->cred_guard_mutex);
