The patch 92d7223a74235054f2aa7227d207d9c57f84dca0 ("alpha: io: reorder
barriers to guarantee writeX() and iowriteX() ordering #2") broke boot on
the Alpha Avanti platform.

The patch changes timing between accesses to the ISA bus, in particular,
it reduces the time between "write" access and a subsequent "read" access.

This causes lock-up when accessing the real time clock and serial ports.

This patch fixes the bug by adding a memory barrier after the functions
that access the ISA ports - outb, outw, outl. The barrier causes that
there is some delay between the write to an IO port and a subsequent read.
