We miss a write barrier that guarantees used idx is updated and seen
before log. This will let userspace sync and copy used ring before
used idx is update. Fix this by adding a barrier before log_write().

Fixes: 8dd014adfea6f ("vhost-net: mergeable buffers support")

also for 4.20 and seems like a stable candidate.
