Subject: [PATCH 3/5] sbitmap: fix improper use of smp_mb__before_atomic()

This barrier only applies to the read-modify-write operations; in
particular, it does not apply to the atomic_set() primitive.

Replace the barrier with an smp_mb().

Fixes: 6c0ca7ae292ad ("sbitmap: fix wakeup hang after sbq resize")
