  MFC: r347960: bhyve virtio needs barriers

  Under certain tight race conditions, we found that the lack of a memory
  barrier in bhyve's virtio handling causes it to miss a NO_NOTIFY state
  transition on block devices, resulting in guest stall. The investigation
  is recorded in OS-7613. As part of the examination into bhyve's use of
  barriers, one other section was found to be problematic, but only on
  non-x86 ISAs with less strict memory ordering. That was addressed in
  this patch as well, although it was not at all a problem on x86.
