Thank you for the review! It looks like you spotted to errors. I think
heree should be

clear INFLIGHT
smp_wmb()
set RET

to pair properly.

On this side (pvcalls_front_event_handler):
write content
smp_wmb
write id

On the other side (all command functions, for example pvcalls_front_socket)
read id (passed to wait_event)
smp_rmb() <--- this is missing and should pair with the above smp_wmb
read content
smp_mb() (*)
clear id

(*) this is unnecessary and has no pairing, it was supposed to protect
against the content being overwritten before the read is complete,
because after clearing the id the slot could be reused. get_request
returns an id, but the content is not overwritten immediately. The id is
passed to the backend, and only upon receiving an answer the content
gets overwritten. I think it is unnecessary and I could remove it or
turn it into a compiler barrier.

Yes, I'll change it
