As part of memory barrier cleanup, this patchset
extends checkpatch to make it easier to stop
incorrect memory barrier usage.

This replaces the checkpatch patches in my series
	arch: barrier cleanup + barriers for virt
and will be included in the next version of the series.

changes from v2:
	address comments by Joe Perches:
	use (?: ... ) to avoid unnecessary capture groups
	rename smp_barriers to smp_barrier_stems for clarity
	add barriers before/after atomic
Changes from v1:
	catch optional\s* before () in barriers
	rewrite using qr{} instead of map

Michael S. Tsirkin (3):
  checkpatch.pl: add missing memory barriers
  checkpatch: check for __smp outside barrier.h
  checkpatch: add virt barriers
