+static unsigned HOST_WIDE_INT
+ix86_extend_hle_macro (unsigned HOST_WIDE_INT memmodel)
+  unsigned HOST_WIDE_INT result = memmodel;
+  if (memmodel & IX86_HLE_ACQUIRE)
+    result |= MEMMODEL_ACQUIRE;
+  if (memmodel & IX86_HLE_RELEASE)
+    result |= MEMMODEL_RELEASE;
+  return result;

This needs to check whether no existing model is already set
Multiple MEMMODEL_* do not or together.

Also I would not call the target hook "hle", it could be used
for other things too.

+Target Report Mask(ISA_HLE) Var(ix86_isa_flags) Save
+Support Hardware Lock Elision prefixies


Also the new flags (plus the implied barrier semantics) 
need to be described in the manual too.

+  static char buf[128], hle[16];

The hle buffer does not need to be static.
BTW I'm surprised there is no better way to do this in machine descriptions
than to use static buffers.

Other than that it looks good to me. Thanks.
