Once the GPU puts the write on the bus then it is up to the whims of the CPU
architecture. If the writes are being done out of order you run a chance of
firing the interrupt and making it all the way to your handler before the writes
catch up.

Since you are scheduling and doing a bunch of things in between you probably
don't need to worry but if you start missing events and you don't know why then
this could be why. A rmb() would give you piece of mind at the cost of being
Yet Another Barrier (TM).
