It looks correct to me on ARM, we use the same barriers in ioread and
iowrite that we use in readl/writel.

Microblaze uses no barriers in any of the I/O accessor families
(readl, ioread32, in_le32, inl, inl_p), so it presumably doesn't
require any because it is fully ordered, at least changing from
in_le32 to ioread32 won't make it worse.
On a related note, the inb/outb style accessors are bogus on microblaze
and should be removed, but that is a different discussion. I should
have updated my old patches to introduce a meaningful CONFIG_NO_IOPORT
ages ago, and without them it probably breaks.
