Subject[PATCH 4.14 23/74] x86/mm: Remove superfluous barriers
Date
4.14-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Peter Zijlstra <peterz@infradead.org>

commit b5fc6d943808b570bdfbec80f40c6b3855f1c48b upstream.

atomic64_inc_return() already implies smp_mb() before and after.
