Subject[PATCH 1/5] percpu_ida: Fix data race on cpus_have_tags cpumask
Function steal_tags() might miss a bit in cpus_have_tags due to
unsynchronized access from percpu_ida_free(). As result, function
percpu_ida_alloc() might enter unwakable sleep. This update adds
memory barriers to prevent the described scenario.

In fact, accesses to cpus_have_tags are fenced by prepare_to_wait()
and wake_up() calls at the moment and the aforementioned sequence
does not appear could hit. Nevertheless, explicit memory barriers
still seem justifiable.
