Subject[RFC PATCH for 4.15 20/24] membarrier: Provide core serializing command
Date
Provide core serializing membarrier command to support memory reclaim
by JIT.

Each architecture needs to explicitly opt into that support by
documenting in their architecture code how they provide the core
serializing instructions required when returning from the membarrier
IPI, and after the scheduler has updated the curr->mm pointer (before
going back to user-space). They should then select
ARCH_HAS_MEMBARRIER_SYNC_CORE to enable support for that command on
their architecture.
