[Xen-devel] [PATCH=v3 7/8] xen: arm: weaken SMP barriers to inner shareable.

Since all processors are in the inner-shareable domain and we map everything
that way this is sufficient.

The non-SMP barriers remain full system. Although in principle they could
become outer shareable barriers for some hardware this would require us to
know which class a given device is. Given the small number of device drivers
in Xen itself its probably not worth worrying over, although maybe someone
will benchmark at some point.
