[PATCH 3.18 16/47] vhost: make sure used idx is seen before log in vhost_add_used_n()

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


From: Jason Wang <jasowang@xxxxxxxxxx>

[ Upstream commit 841df922417eb82c835e93d4b93eb6a68c99d599 ]

We miss a write barrier that guarantees used idx is updated and seen
before log. This will let userspace sync and copy used ring before
used idx is update. Fix this by adding a barrier before log_write().
