Subject[PATCH v3 1/2] MIPS: io: prevent compiler reordering on the default writeX() implementation
Date
writeX() has a strong ordering semantics with respect to memory updates.
In the abscence of a write barrier or a compiler barrier, commpiler can
reorder register and memory update instructions. This breaks the writeX()
API.
