After sending an ipc command to DSP, the host waits for the reply message
which will be read from SST_IPCD register in sst_byt_irq_thread() to
complete the transaction. Sometimes the value read from SST_IPCD register
is still the reply message for previous command instead of the waiting
command so ipc command timeout happens.

In an experiment we read the same SST_IPCD register again when the defect
happens and found the value of second read is different from previous one
and is the correct reply message. It suggests the DSP is okay but the way
we read the register may be the cause.

Currently the driver is using memcpy_fromio() to read the value of 64-bit
registers. This function is based on __builtin_memcpy() call and depends
on the implementation of compiler. Since this issue happens right after
the toolchain switched from clang 10 to clang 11, we replace the register
read with two readl() function calls to avoid all optimization from
compiler's library.
