Subject[PATCH 5/5] sched: correctly place paranioa memory barriers in synchronize_sched_expedited()
Date
From: Paul E. McKenney <paulmck@linux.vnet.ibm.com>

The memory barriers must be in the SMP case, not in the !SMP case.
Also add a barrier after the atomic_inc() in order to ensure that
other CPUs see post-synchronize_sched_expedited() actions as following
the expedited grace period.
