[ Upstream commit 8d3ea3d402db94b61075617e71b67459a714a502 ]
GCC12 appears to be much smarter about its dependency tracking and is aware that the relaxed variants are just normal loads and stores and this is causing problems like:

The assumption when these were relaxed seems to be that device memory would be mapped non reordering, and that other constructs (spinlocks/etc) would provide the barriers to assure that packet data and in memory rings/queues were ordered with respect to device register reads/writes. This itself seems a bit sketchy, but the real problem with GCC12 is that it is moving the actual reads/writes around at will as though they were independent operations when in truth they are not, but the compiler can't know that. When looking at the assembly dumps for many of these routines its possible to see very clean, but not strictly in program order operations occurring as the compiler would be free to do if these weren't actually register reads/write operations.
Its possible to suppress the timeout with a liberal bit of dma_mb()'s sprinkled around but the device still seems unable to reliably send/receive data. A better plan is to use the safer readl/writel everywhere.
Since this partially reverts an older commit, which notes the use of the relaxed variants for performance reasons. I would suggest that any performance problems with this commit are targeted at relaxing only the performance critical code paths after assuring proper barriers.
