We get a free __iormb() and dma_rmb() from every gpu_read() so I think that
is enough to catch everything up when the interrupt handler reads the status
register and in most cases we don't check the fence until after that. I'm not
sure that covers all the possible error cases. Maybe something to look into?

Also that field is marked as volatile in the struct, but I'm not sure that does
anything useful.
