rte_cio_wmb is a light weight version of IO memory barrier that
guarantees that the stores to the coherent memory prior to the
the rte_cio_rmb() call are visible to the NIC HW before the doorbell
ring(or any other stores to the MMIO registers) that follows it.[1]

Fixes: 5e02e19eb14e ("net/ena: fix unneeded doorbell submission")
