Given the direction to get rid of wmb() in front of writeX() functions, I have been
reviewing this code. Under normal circumstances, I can get rid of all wmb() as follows.

However, I started having my doubts now. Are these wmb() used as a SMP barrier too?
I can't find any smp_Xmb() in drivers/infiniband/hw/qedr directory.

static void doorbell_cq(struct qedr_cq *cq, u32 cons, u8 flags)
{
- /* Flush data before signalling doorbell */
- wmb();
cq->db.data.agg_flags = flags;
cq->db.data.value = cpu_to_le32(cons);
