Subject: [PATCH 5.1 007/405] sbitmap: fix improper use of smp_mb__before_atomic()

From: Andrea Parri <andrea.parri@...rulasolutions.com>

commit a0934fd2b1208458e55fc4b48f55889809fce666 upstream.

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")
