datapath-windows: Removed memory barrier and master lock
There is no need to enforce Netlink serialization on transactions
sent from userspace. The access to the driver's shared resources
is synchronized anyway. Thus I have removed the master lock.
I also removed the memory barrier from filter dispatch routine. A
memory barrier is already in place in OvsReleaseSwitchContext
function, due to the use of InterlockedCompareExchange function.
