Subject: [RESEND v2 PATCH 2/2] aio, mem-hotplug: Add memory barrier to aio ring page migration.

When doing aio ring page migration, we migrated the page, and update
ctx->ring_pages[]. Like the following:

aio_migratepage()
 |-> migrate_page_copy(new, old)
 |   ......				/* Need barrier here */
 |-> ctx->ring_pages[idx] = new

Actually, we need a memory barrier between these two operations.
Otherwise, if ctx->ring_pages[] is updated before memory copy due to
the compiler optimization, other processes may have an opportunity
to access to the not fully initialized new ring page.

So add a wmb and rmb to synchronize them.

v2: change smp_rmb() to smp_read_barrier_depends(). Thanks Miao.
