 Umm, my question was ill-formed, sorry.  There's a convoluted history 
recorded for that macro in the repo and it could be that it can be removed 
now that we have proper barriers in place, except possibly to avoid the 
Octeon Errata Core-301 (whatever that is).

 Anyway I meant: does `war_io_reorder_wmb' expand to `wmb' on your system?
