nativeGen/X86: MFENCE is unnecessary for release semantics
In #22764 a user noticed that a program implementing a simple atomic counter via an STRef regressed significantly due to the introduction of necessary atomic operations in the MutVar# primops (#22468). This regression was caused by a bug in the NCG, which emitted an unnecessary MFENCE instruction for a release-ordered atomic write. MFENCE is rather only needed to achieve sequentially consistent ordering. Fixes #22764.
