Subject[PATCH v3 04/18] igb: eliminate duplicate barriers on weakly-ordered archs
Date
Code includes wmb() followed by writel(). writel() already has a barrier
on some architectures like arm64.

This ends up CPU observing two barriers back to back before executing the
register write.

Since code already has an explicit barrier call, changing writel() to
writel_relaxed().
