Oops, I have mistaken the word, "temporal" should be "non-temporal".

By the way, there are some instructions which use non-temporal
cache liek MOVNTx series.
The store ordering of these instructions is not kept.

Ref. Intel Software Developer Manual
 Vol.1 10.4.6.2 Caching of Temporal vs. Non-Temporal Data
 Vol.3 8.2 Memory Ordering

Hiroshi
