[PATCH 4.14 071/159] locking/barriers: Add implicit smp_read_barrier_depends() to READ_ONCE()

From: Greg Kroah-Hartman
Date: Fri Dec 22 2017 - 04:01:47 EST

4.14-stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Will Deacon <will.deacon@xxxxxxx>

commit c2bc66082e1048c7573d72e62f597bdc5ce13fea upstream.

[ Note, this is a Git cherry-pick of the following commit:

76ebbe78f739 ("locking/barriers: Add implicit smp_read_barrier_depends() to READ_ONCE()")

... for easier x86 PTI code testing and back-porting. ]

In preparation for the removal of lockless_dereference(), which is the
same as READ_ONCE() on all architectures other than Alpha, add an
implicit smp_read_barrier_depends() to READ_ONCE() so that it can be
used to head dependency chains on all architectures.
