alpha: Override READ_ONCE() with barriered implementation
Rather then relying on the core code to use smp_read_barrier_depends() as part of the READ_ONCE() definition, instead override __READ_ONCE() in the Alpha code so that it generates the required mb() and then implement smp_load_acquire() using the new macro to avoid redundant back-to-back barriers from the generic implementation.

-/**
- * read_barrier_depends - Flush all pending reads that subsequents reads
- * depend on.
- *
- * No data-dependent reads from memory-like regions are ever reordered
- * over this barrier. All reads preceding this primitive are guaranteed
- * to access memory (but not necessarily other CPUs' caches) before any
- * reads following this primitive that depend on the data return by
- * any of the preceding reads. This primitive is much lighter weight than
- * rmb() on most CPUs, and is never heavier weight than is
- * rmb().
- *
- * These ordering constraints are respected by both the local CPU
- * and the compiler.
- *
- * Ordering is not guaranteed by anything other than these primitives,
- * not even by data dependencies. See the documentation for
- * memory_barrier() for examples and URLs to more information.
- *
- * For example, the following code would force ordering (the initial
- * value of "a" is zero, "b" is one, and "p" is "&a"):
- *
- * <programlisting>
- * CPU 0 CPU 1
- *
- * b = 2;
- * memory_barrier();
- * p = &b; q = p;
- * read_barrier_depends();
- * d = *q;
- * </programlisting>
- *
- * because the read of "*q" depends on the read of "p" and these
- * two reads are separated by a read_barrier_depends(). However,
- * the following code, with the same initial values for "a" and "b":
- *
- * <programlisting>
- * CPU 0 CPU 1
- *
- * a = 2;
- * memory_barrier();
- * b = 3; y = b;
- * read_barrier_depends();
- * x = a;
- * </programlisting>
- *
- * does not enforce ordering, since there is no data dependency between
- * the read of "a" and the read of "b". Therefore, on some CPUs, such
- * as Alpha, "y" could be set to 3 and "x" to 0. Use rmb()
- * in cases like this where there are no data dependencies.
