Inconsistent lock state / deadlock in vboxdrv during ACPI S3 host suspend

there is a certain probability that vboxdrv will enter a deadlock state causing the suspend operation to fail. While the kernel attempts to recover from the suspend failure there were followup errors that required a hard reset. Having vboxdrv loaded seems to be sufficient, i.e., the problem happens independently from a running VirtualBox VM.
Please find attached the dmesg output from the respective session (search for "DEADLOCK").
