If I remember my rules correctly, rcu_dereference is a
read-data-depends, which only means that a read through the pointer
returned by rcu_dereference() is after the retrieval of that pointer.
Nothing orders the retrieval of fence_excl vs shared_count (different
pointers), so I think the last line should be:

smp_rmb();
if (rcu_access_pointer(resv->fence_excl) != fence_excl)
