SubjectRe: [PATCH v2 2/2] io: prevent compiler reordering on the default readX() implementation
Hi,

Could you please specify what the compiler is potentially reordering
__raw_readX() against, and why this would be wrong?

e.g. do we care about prior normal memory accesses, subsequent normal
memory accesses, and/or other IO accesses?

I assume that the asm-generic __raw_{read,write}X() implementations are
all ordered w.r.t. each other (at least for a specific device).

Thanks,
Mark.
