s390/ctl_reg: make __ctl_load a full memory barrier
We have quite a lot of code that depends on the order of the __ctl_load inline assemby and subsequent memory accesses, like e.g. disabling lowcore protection and the writing to lowcore. Since the __ctl_load macro does not have memory barrier semantics, nor any other dependencies the compiler is, theoretically, free to shuffle code around. Or in other words: storing to lowcore could happen before lowcore protection is disabled. In order to avoid this class of potential bugs simply add a full memory barrier to the __ctl_load macro.
