Nice! FWIW, I'm planning to have Alpha override __READ_ONCE_SCALAR()
eventually, so that smp_read_barrier_depends() can disappear forever. I
just bit off more than I can chew for 5.8 :(

However, '__unqual_scalar_typeof()' is still useful for
load-acquire/store-release on arm64, so we still need a better solution to
the build-time regression imo. I'm not fond of picking random C11 features
to accomplish that, but I also don't have any better ideas...

Is there any mileage in the clever trick from Rasmus?
