sa_handle_callback() must acquire the lli_sa_lock before calling
sa_has_callback(), which checks whether the sai_interim_entries list is
empty. Acquiring the lock avoids a race between an rpc handler
executing ll_statahead_interpret and the separate ll_statahead_thread.

When a client receives a stat request response, ll_statahead_interpret
increments sai_replied and if needed adds the request to the
sai_interim_entries list for instantiating by the ll_statahead_thread.
ll_statahead_interpret() holds the lli_sa_lock while doing this work.
On process termination, ll_statahead_thread() waits for sai_sent to
equal sai_replied and then removes any entries in the
sai_interim_entries list. It does not get the lli_sa_lock until
it determines that there are sai_interim_entries to process.

A bug occurs on weak memory model processors that do not guarantee
that both ll_statahead_interpret updates done under the lock are
visible to other processors at the same time. For example, on ARM
nodes, an ll_statahead_thread can read the updated value of
sai_replied and a non-updated value of sai_interim_lists.
ll_statahead_thread then thinks all replies have been received (true)
and all sai_interim_entries have been processed false). Later, the
update to sai_interim_entries becomes visible leaving the
ll_statahead_info struct in an unexpected state.

The bad state eventually triggers the LBUG:
statahead.c:477:ll_sai_put()) ASSERTION( !sa_has_callback(sai) )
