Subjectlinux-next: missing merge fix for the access_once tree
Hi Linus,

I have been carrying this merge fix patch for some time. It should
have gone into the merge of the access_once tree.

From: Christian Borntraeger <borntraeger@de.ibm.com>
Date: Sun, 7 Dec 2014 22:01:59 +0100
Subject: [PATCH] x86/xen/p2m: Replace ACCESS_ONCE with READ_ONCE

ACCESS_ONCE does not work reliably on non-scalar types. For
example gcc 4.6 and 4.7 might remove the volatile tag for such
accesses during the SRA (scalar replacement of aggregates) step
(https://gcc.gnu.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=58145)

Change the p2m code to replace ACCESS_ONCE with READ_ONCE.
