SCHED_RESTART code path is relied to re-run queue for dispatch requests
in hctx->dispatch. Meantime the SCHED_RSTART flag is checked when adding
requests to hctx->dispatch.

memory barriers have to be used for ordering the following two pair of OPs:

1) adding requests to hctx->dispatch and checking SCHED_RESTART in
blk_mq_dispatch_rq_list()

2) clearing SCHED_RESTART and checking if there is request in hctx->dispatch
in blk_mq_sched_restart().

Without the added memory barrier, either:

1) blk_mq_sched_restart() may miss requests added to hctx->dispatch meantime
blk_mq_dispatch_rq_list() observes SCHED_RESTART, and not run queue in
dispatch side

or

2) blk_mq_dispatch_rq_list still sees SCHED_RESTART, and not run queue
in dispatch side, meantime checking if there is request in
hctx->dispatch from blk_mq_sched_restart() is missed.

IO hang in ltp/fs_fill test is reported by kernel test robot:

	https://lkml.org/lkml/2020/7/26/77

Turns out it is caused by the above out-of-order OPs. And the IO hang
can't be observed any more after applying this patch.
