Subject[PATCH tip/core/rcu 09/21] uprobes: Remove now-redundant smp_read_barrier_depends()
Date
Now that READ_ONCE() implies smp_read_barrier_depends(), the
get_xol_area() and get_trampoline_vaddr() no longer need their
smp_read_barrier_depends() calls, which this commit removes.
While we are here, convert the corresponding smp_wmb() to an
smp_store_release().
