No need for a latch here since we don't have to wait.
A simple boolean flag is enough.

The memory order on the reload flag is changed to rel-acq ordering to
serve as a synchronisation point between the pmd threads and the control
thread that asks for termination.

Fixes: e4cfed38b159 ("dpif-netdev: Add poll-mode-device thread.")

Changelog since v1:
- added memory ordering on 'reload' atomic to serve as a synchronisation
  point between control thread and pmd threads

I don't think "latch.h" is needed anymore in the file so it's include
could be removed too
