ibmvscsi: Add memory barriers for send / receive
commit 7114aae02742d6b5c5a0d39a41deb61d415d3717 upstream. Add a memory barrier prior to sending a new command to the VIOS to ensure the VIOS does not receive stale data in the command buffer. Also add a memory barrier when processing the CRQ for completed commands.
