I can't give a try because I have no HW. All I contributed here so far
was based on what you wrote in the previous email and then I spotted the
lack of the barrier of any sorts and asked about it.
I _would_ assume that the cmpxchg_barrier() here would work but I'm far
from knowing.
If the explicit barrier after the cmpxchg_relaxed() is what you two
agree on and it is better/ cheaper/ more obvious then fine. Do it ;)
