Hmm, we used to have lockless_dereference() here, but it was replaced
with READ_ONCE some time ago. The commit message claims that READ_ONCE
has an implicit read barrier in it.

locking/barriers: Convert users of lockless_dereference() to READ_ONCE()

READ_ONCE() now has an implicit smp_read_barrier_depends() call, so it
can be used instead of lockless_dereference() without any change in
semantics.

locking/barriers: Add implicit smp_read_barrier_depends() to READ_ONCE()

In preparation for the removal of lockless_dereference(), which is the
same as READ_ONCE() on all architectures other than Alpha, add an
implicit smp_read_barrier_depends() to READ_ONCE() so that it can be
used to head dependency chains on all architectures.
