NAME
     ck_pr_fence_store_atomic -- enforce ordering of store operations to load
     operations

LIBRARY
     Concurrency Kit (libck, -lck)

SYNOPSIS
     #include <ck_pr.h>

     void
     ck_pr_fence_store_atomic(void);

     void
     ck_pr_fence_strict_store_atomic(void);

DESCRIPTION
     The ck_pr_fence_store_atomic() function enfores the ordering of any mem-
     ory store, ck_pr_store() and atomic read-modify-write operations to
     atomic read-modify-write operations relative to the invocation of the
     function. This function always serve as an implicit compiler barrier.
     This functions will emit a fence for PSO and RMO targets. In order to
     force the emission of a fence use the ck_pr_fence_strict_store_atomic()
     function.

EXAMPLE
           #include <ck_pr.h>

           static int a = 0;
           static int b = 0;

           void
           function(void)
           {

                   ck_pr_store_int(&a, 1);

                   /*
                    * Guarantee that the store to a is completed
                    * with respect to the update of b.
                    */
                   ck_pr_fence_store_atomic();
                   ck_pr_add_int(&b, 2);
                   return;
           }

RETURN VALUES
     This function has no return value.
