  Changed paths:
    M ofproto/ofproto-dpif.c

  Log Message:
  ofproto-dpif: Use acquire/release barriers with 'tables_version'.

Use memory_order_release when updating the tables version number to
make sure no memory accesses before the atomic_store (possibly
relating to setting up the new version) are reordered to take place
after the atomic_store, which makes the new version available to other

Correspondingly, use memory_order_acquire when reading the
current tables_version to make sure no later memory accesses (possibly
relating to the current version) are reordered to take place before
the atomic_read to ensure that those memory accesses can not relate to
an older version than returned by the atomic_read.
