Generally when I see this panic (at this source line in mtx_lock() and with an
offset of 0x188 or 0x18c), it is because the mutex is destroyed (mtx_lock ==
In this case since you got it in a task, I'm guessing ata destroyed a
structure w/o draining the task, so the task executed after the structure
containing the mutex was destroyed.
