Subject[PATCH 5.4 066/110] net: Google gve: Remove dma_wmb() before ringing doorbell
Date
From: Liran Alon <liran.alon@oracle.com>

[ Upstream commit b54ef37b1ce892fdf6b632d566246d2f2f539910 ]

Current code use dma_wmb() to ensure Rx/Tx descriptors are visible
to device before writing to doorbell.

However, these dma_wmb() are wrong and unnecessary. Therefore,
they should be removed.

iowrite32be() called from gve_rx_write_doorbell()/gve_tx_put_doorbell()
should guaratee that all previous writes to WB/UC memory is visible to
device before the write done by iowrite32be().

E.g. On ARM64, iowrite32be() calls __iowmb() which expands to dma_wmb()
and only then calls __raw_writel().
