With the new standardized functions, we can replace all ACCESS_ONCE()

ACCESS_ONCE() does not work reliably on non-scalar types. For example
gcc 4.6 and 4.7 might remove the volatile tag for such accesses during
the SRA (scalar replacement of aggregates) step:
Update the new calls regardless of if it is a scalar type, this is
cleaner than having three alternatives.

Nit, this doesn't match your From: line :(
If this is the case, why not just replacing the define for ACCESS_ONCE()
with READ_ONCE() and then go back and just do a search/replace for the
whole kernel all at once?
Or just send Linus a patch for this all at once after -rc1 is out?
