I think re-order is possible. According to my understanding, 
If cci ack dmb(oshst), the follow order is not guaranteed if no address overlap
for normal memory. 

A6.6.1 of AXI protocol spec. 

A write W1 must be ordered before a write W2 with the same ID, to the *same Memory location*, where W2
is received after W1 is received.
