Subject[PATCH 4.9 20/61] locking: Remove smp_read_barrier_depends() from queued_spin_lock_slowpath()
Date
4.9-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

commit 548095dea63ffc016d39c35b32c628d033638aca upstream.

Queued spinlocks are not used by DEC Alpha, and furthermore operations
such as READ_ONCE() and release/relaxed RMW atomics are being changed
to imply smp_read_barrier_depends(). This commit therefore removes the
now-redundant smp_read_barrier_depends() from queued_spin_lock_slowpath(),
and adjusts the comments accordingly.
