Currently, the audit tree code does not make sure that when a chunk in
inserted into the hash table, it is fully initialized. So in theory (in
practice only on DEC Alpha) a user of RCU lookup could see uninitialized
structure in the hash table and crash. Add appropriate barriers between
initialization of the structure and its insertion into hash table.
