[PATCH 3.18 034/144] s390/kvm: REPLACE barrier fixup with READ_ONCE




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

------------------

[ Upstream commit 5de72a2247ac05bde7c89039631b3d0c6186fafb ]

ACCESS_ONCE does not work reliably on non-scalar types. For
example gcc 4.6 and 4.7 might remove the volatile tag for such
accesses during the SRA (scalar replacement of aggregates) step
(https://gcc.gnu.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=58145)

Commit 1365039d0cb3 ("KVM: s390: Fix ipte locking") replace
ACCESS_ONCE with barriers. Lets use READ_ONCE instead.
