    Two reasons

    #1 You should use cpu_relax in such loops
    #2 The readl (which c4inmeml is a pointless #define of) is defined to be
    a volatile reference itself

    That means that the real bug would appear to be different and either you
    have a gcc bug which is possible or you have something stranger going
    on, such as the continued polling busying the microcontroller the other
    end, in which case you need a delay not the lucky chance that mb() is
    slowish on some x86 systems.

    So you either want

    cpu_relax + other fixes
    or udelay(something)
