Subject: [PATCH 3.13 034/259] ibmvscsi: Add memory barriers for send / receive

3.13.11.6 -stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Brian King <brking@...ux.vnet.ibm.com>

commit 7114aae02742d6b5c5a0d39a41deb61d415d3717 upstream.

Add a memory barrier prior to sending a new command to the VIOS
to ensure the VIOS does not receive stale data in the command buffer.
Also add a memory barrier when processing the CRQ for completed commands.
