Subject[PATCH 4.9 129/223] bnx2x: Prevent load reordering in tx completion processing
Date
From: Brian King <brking@linux.vnet.ibm.com>

[ Upstream commit ea811b795df24644a8eb760b493c43fba4450677 ]

This patch fixes an issue seen on Power systems with bnx2x which results
in the skb is NULL WARN_ON in bnx2x_free_tx_pkt firing due to the skb
pointer getting loaded in bnx2x_free_tx_pkt prior to the hw_cons
load in bnx2x_tx_int. Adding a read memory barrier resolves the issue.
