x86 can keep store ordering with standard operations.

Using memory barrier is much expensive in main packet processing loop.
Removing this improves xmit/recv packet performance.

We can see performance improvements with memnic-tester.

 1280 | 2.86Mpps | 3.15Mpps
 1518 | 2.59Mpps | 2.87Mpps

Note: we have to take care if we use temporal cache.
