  Log Message:
  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.
