Subject[PATCH v2 18/21] scsi/qla1280: Remove stale comment about mmiowb()
Date
All mmiowb() invocations have been removed, so there's no need to keep
banging on about it.

/*
* Update request index to mailbox4 (Request Queue In).
- * The mmiowb() ensures that this write is ordered with writes by other
- * CPUs. Without the mmiowb(), it is possible for the following:
- * CPUA posts write of index 5 to mailbox4
- * CPUA releases host lock
- * CPUB acquires host lock
- * CPUB posts write of index 6 to mailbox4
- * On PCI bus, order reverses and write of 6 posts, then index 5,
- * causing chip to issue full queue of stale commands
- * The mmiowb() prevents future writes from crossing the barrier.
- * See Documentation/driver-api/device-io.rst for more information.
