Description

[MCA][LSUnit] Track loads and stores until retirement.

Before this patch, loads and stores were only tracked by their corresponding
queues in the LSUnit from dispatch until execute stage. In practice we should be
more conservative and assume that memory opcodes leave their queues at
retirement stage.

Basically, loads should leave the load queue only when they have completed and
delivered their data. We conservatively assume that a load is completed when it
is retired. Stores should be tracked by the store queue from dispatch until
retirement. In practice, stores can only leave the store queue if their data can
be written to the data cache.

This is mostly a mechanical change. With this patch, the retire stage notifies
the LSUnit when a memory instruction is retired. That would triggers the release
of LDQ/STQ entries. The only visible change is in memory tests for the bdver2
model. That is because bdver2 is the only model that defines the load/store
queue size.

This patch partially addresses PR39830.
