You're right Thomas, I was mistakenly looking at release_store_ptr_*fence*
- all good then.

Yes, it sounds like it would break on alpha (based on your description, I
haven't looked at the code), but that's not a supported platform anyway
right? Otherwise, you'd probably have to introduce a new read barrier type
for data dependence that's a nop for all but alpha so as to not penalize
the others.
