[PATCH v3 2/6] PCI: designware: add memory barrier after enabling region

Add 'write memory' barrier after enable region in PCIE_ATU_CR2
register. The barrier is needed to ensure that the region enable
request has been reached it's destination at time when we
read/write to PCI configuration space.

Without this barrier PCI device enumeration during kernel boot
is not reliable, and reading configuration space for particular
PCI device on the bus returns zero aka no device.
