ring: enforce reading tail before slots
In weak memory models, like arm64, reading the prod.tail may get reordered after reading the ring slots, which corrupts the ring and stale data is observed. This issue was reported by NXP on 8-A72 DPAA2 board. The problem is most likely caused by missing the acquire semantics when reading prod.tail (in SC dequeue) which makes it possible to read a stale value from the ring slots. For MP (and MC) case, rte_atomic32_cmpset() already provides the required ordering. For SP case, the control depependency between if-statement (which depends on the read of r->cons.tail) and the later stores to the ring slots make RMB unnecessary. About the control dependency, read more at: This patch is adding the required read barrier to prevent reading the ring slots get reordered before reading prod.tail for SC case.
