The following series adds fence instruction generation support to
TCG. Based on feedback to the last series, I added the four
combinations of orderings modeled after Sparc membar.

This has been tested and confirmed to fix ordering issues on
x86/armv7/aarch64 hosts with MTTCG enabled for an ARMv7 guest using
KVM unit tests.


* The acquire/release order is not utilized yet. Currently we generate
  SC barriers even for acquire/release barriers. The idea is to write
  a pass which combines acquire/release barrier with its corresponding
  load/store operation to generate the load acquire/store release
  instruction on hosts which have such instruction(aarch64 for
  now). Also the pass should try to optimize some trivial scenarios
  like removing unnecessary barrier instructions.

* Complete support for fence generation in other architectures.


- Create different types of barriers. The barrier tcg opcode now takes
  an argument to generate the appropriate barrier instruction.
- Also add acquire/release/sc ordering flag to argument.


- Rebase on Richard's patches generating fences for other


- Initial version: Introduce memory barrier tcg opcode.
