I would suspect that you don't need locking here, and locking would likely
make it worse.

From what I can tell, an interrupt happening anywhere inside of mstarv7_mb()
would still result in the function completing (as miu_status still has the
MSTARV7_L3BRIDGE_STATUS_DONE bit set) and nothing that could
happen inside the irq would make the barrier weaker, only stronger.

This is a heavy memory barrier indeed.

The use of _relaxed() accessors is normally a bad idea and should be
avoided, but
this is one of the places where it is necessary because the normal
would recurse into arm_heavy_barrier(). Can you add a comment explaining this
for the next reviewer?

Hardcoding physical addresses is generally considered bad style,
even if you know the address in advance. Can you change this to get
the address of the L3BRIDGE from DT instead and just hardcode the
offsets? Note that they are in the same physical page, so you only
need a single of_iomap().

I think you can fold this into a single function.
