Subject: [PATCH v2 05/19] PM / devfreq: tegra: Replace write memory barrier with the read barrier

The write memory barrier isn't needed because the BUS buffer is flushed
by read after write that happens after the removed wmb(), we will also
use readl() instead of the relaxed version to ensure that read is indeed
