Subject: [PATCH 0/5] Fix improper uses of smp_mb__{before,after}_atomic()

Hello!

A relatively common misuse of these barriers is to apply these to
operations which are not read-modify-write operations, such as
atomic_set() and atomic_read(); examples were discussed in [1].

This series attempts to fix those uses by (conservatively) replacing
the smp_mb__{before,after}_atomic() barriers with full memory barriers.

Applies on 5.1-rc7.

Thanks,
  Andrea
