I don't think the intrinsic as defined will have stores reordered around
it.  From include/llvm/IR/Intrinsics.td:

// Intr*Mem - Memory properties.  An intrinsic is allowed to have at most one of
// these properties set.  They are listed from the most aggressive (best to use
// if correct) to the least aggressive.  If no property is set, the worst case
// is assumed (it may read and write any memory it can get access to and
// it may have other side effects).
