perf/ring_buffer: Add ordering to rb->nest increment

[ Upstream commit 3f9fbe9bd86c534eba2faf5d840fd44c6049f50e ]

Similar to how decrementing rb->next too early can cause data_head to
(temporarily) be observed to go backward, so too can this happen when
we increment too late.

This barrier() ensures the rb->head load happens after the increment,
both the one in the 'goto again' path, as the one from
perf_output_get_handle() -- albeit very unlikely to matter for the
latter.
