I have just a couple of overall comments.

- It would be nice if the document were done in RST and placed in the
core-API manual, perhaps using kerneldoc comments for the macros
themselves. It's already 99.9% RST now, so the changes required would
be minimal.

- More importantly: is there any way at all to give guidance to
developers wondering *when* they should use these primitives? I think
it would be easy to create a situation where they don't get used where
they are really needed; meanwhile, there may well be a flood of
"helpful" patches adding them where they make no sense at all.

Thanks,

jon
