Ok, no problem. I just wanted to make sure that the community is on-board in reviewing the patch and making decisions. I guess the proposal on the mailing list is enough for that?

I guess it is more about which library was created first. I will reverse the order.

There were few references provided in the patch. They are at [1], [2] and [3]. But, I guess it is not clear what this work item means exactly. I can change it as follows:

"Change IO barriers to use 'DMB' instruction for Armv8-a"

The patch itself is trivial. But, it is a basic change affecting all the drivers for Arm platforms. So, I would like to call out everyone's attention.
