Log Message:
x86: Every load is a load-acquire, so membar_consumer is a noop.

lfence is only needed for MD logic, such as operations on I/O memory
rather than normal cacheable memory, or special instructions like
RDTSC -- never for MI synchronization between threads/CPUs.  No need
for hot-patching to do lfence here.

(The x86_lfence function might reasonably be patched on i386 to do
lfence for MD logic, but it isn't now and this doesn't change that.)
