    xfs: memory barrier before wake_up_bit()
    
    In xfs_ifunlock() there is a call to wake_up_bit() after clearing
    the flush lock on the xfs inode.  This is not guaranteed to be safe,
    as noted in the comments above wake_up_bit() beginning with:
    
        In order for this to function properly, as it uses
        waitqueue_active() internally, some kind of memory
        barrier must be done prior to calling this.
