SD assert when calling mesh_stack_device_reset()

When calling mesh_stack_device_reset() we often experience a hangup from a SD assert.

mesh_stack_device_reset -> hal_device_reset -> app_error_fault_handler:
NRF_FAULT_ID_SD_ASSERT
PC: 0x24506

call stack:
_WFI()
sleep_forever()
app_error_fault_handler()
0x23de8

How do we avoid this assert?
