Subject[PATCH AUTOSEL 4.14 13/15] xenbus: req->err should be updated before req->state
Date
From: Dongli Zhang <dongli.zhang@oracle.com>

[ Upstream commit 8130b9d5b5abf26f9927b487c15319a187775f34 ]

This patch adds the barrier to guarantee that req->err is always updated
before req->state.

Otherwise, read_reply() would not return ERR_PTR(req->err) but
req->body, when process_writes()->xb_write() is failed.
