This is a problem many places in DPDK. You said it was related to -O0
but that is just what is causing a more generic problem to be exposed.
Your solution is not sufficient.

DPDK is sloppy in several places in handling memory ordering issues     
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Memory_ordering

It should have a macro to do RTE_READ_ONCE(). Several drives have this,
the Linux kernel has it, Liburcu has it.

The macro RTE_READ_ONCE() can then be used in many places in DPDK.
