SPDK blobfs encountered a crash around rte_ring dequeues in ppc64.
It uses a single consumer and multiple producers for a rte_ring.
The problem was a load-load reorder in rte_ring_sc_dequeue_bulk().

The reordered loads happened on r->prod.tail in
__rte_ring_move_cons_head() (rte_ring_generic.h) and ring[idx] in
DEQUEUE_PTRS() (rte_ring.h). They have a load-load control
dependency, but the code does not satisfy it. Note that they are
not reordered if __rte_ring_move_cons_head() with is_sc != 1 because
cmpset invokes a read barrier.

The paired stores on these loads are in ENQUEUE_PTRS() and
update_tail(). Simplified code around the reorder is the following.

Consumer             Producer
load idx[ring]
                     store idx[ring]
                     store r->prod.tail
load r->prod.tail

In this case, the consumer loads old idx[ring] and confirms the load
is valid with the new r->prod.tail.

I added a read barrier in the case where __IS_SC is passed to
__rte_ring_move_cons_head(). I also fixed __rte_ring_move_prod_head()
to avoid similar problems with a single producer.
