Subject[PATCH 3.16 48/63] x86/atomic: Fix smp_mb__{before,after}_atomic()
3.16.81-rc1 review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Peter Zijlstra <peterz@infradead.org>

commit 69d927bba39517d0980462efc051875b7f4db185 upstream.

Recent probing at the Linux Kernel Memory Model uncovered a
'surprise'. Strongly ordered architectures where the atomic RmW
primitive implies full memory ordering and
smp_mb__{before,after}_atomic() are a simple barrier() (such as x86)
fail for:

*x = 1;
atomic_inc(u);
smp_mb__after_atomic();
r0 = *y;

Because, while the atomic_inc() implies memory order, it
(surprisingly) does not provide a compiler barrier. This then allows
the compiler to re-order like so:

atomic_inc(u);
*x = 1;
smp_mb__after_atomic();
r0 = *y;

Which the CPU is then allowed to re-order (under TSO rules) like:

atomic_inc(u);
r0 = *y;
*x = 1;

And this very much was not intended. Therefore strengthen the atomic
RmW ops to include a compiler barrier.

NOTE: atomic_{or,and,xor} and the bitops already had the compiler
barrier.
