Ah. Can we log a noisy warning about resetting the engine while a DMA is
in progress then? I'd hate to debug this otherwise. The more information
we can log about both clients the better.

We still need to make sure we're using consistent locking, even if we wind
up with nested locking.

Right, that's handy context.
