futex: Rename barrier references in ordering guarantees
Ingo suggested we rename how we reference barriers A and B regarding futex ordering guarantees. This patch replaces, for both barriers, MB (A) with smp_mb(); (A), such that: - We explicitly state that the barriers are SMP, and - We standardize how we reference these across futex.c helping readers follow what barrier does what and where.
