other info that might help us debug this:

Chain exists of:
  &pipe->mutex/1 --> &ovl_i_mutex_key[depth] --> sb_writers#5

 Possible unsafe locking scenario:

       CPU0                    CPU1
       ----                    ----
  lock(sb_writers#5);
                               lock(&ovl_i_mutex_key[depth]);
                               lock(sb_writers#5);
  lock(&pipe->mutex/1);
