This patch fixes RTE SMP barrier bugs for the perf test of eventdev.

For the "perf_process_last_stage" function, wmb after storing
processed_pkts should be moved before it. This is because the worker
lcore should ensure it has really finished data processing, e.g. event
stored into buffers, before the shared variables "w->processed_pkts"are
stored.

For the "perf_process_last_stage_latency", on the one hand, the wmb
should be moved before storing into "w->processed_pkts". The reason is
the same as above. But on the other hand, for "w->latency", wmb is
unnecessary due to data dependency.

Fixes: 2369f73329f8 ("app/testeventdev: add perf queue worker functions")
