Yes, this patch got a bit mixed up with the previous one.

To answer your question nevertheless, mem_access_resume is redefined
to be only doing mem_access related work. Previously it was
responsible to pulling all the responses off the ring, even if these
were not mem_access related. Now the monitor is pulling the responses
off the ring, and issues mem_access_resume if the response is to a
mem_access request.
