SubjectRE: [PATCH v3 18/18] infiniband: cxgb4: Eliminate duplicate barriers on weakly-ordered archs

NAK - This isn't correct for PowerPC. For PowerPC, writeX_relaxed() is just
writeX().

I was just looking at this with Chelsio developers, and they said the
writeX() should be replaced with __raw_writeX(), not writeX_relaxed(), to
get rid of the extra barrier for all architectures.

Also, t4.h:pio_copy() needs to use __raw_writeq() to enable the write
combining fastpath for ARM and PowerPC. The code as it stands doesn't
achieve any write combining on PowerPC at least.

And the writel()s at the end of the ring functions (the non bar2 udb path)
needs a mmiowb() afterwards if you're going to use __raw_writeX() there.
However that path is only used for very old hardware (T4), so I wouldn't
worry about them.

Steve.
