[PATCH 1/4] hv: add helpers to handle hv_util device state

From: Olaf Hering
Date: Mon Sep 07 2015 - 10:27:51 EST

The callbacks in kvp, vss and fcopy code are called the main thread and
also from interrupt context. If a state change is done by the main
thread it is not immediately seen by the interrupt. As a result the
state machine gets out of sync.

Force propagation of state changes via get/set helpers with a memory barrier.
