Subject[PATCH memory-model 06/19] tools/memory-order: smp_mb__after_atomic() orders later RMW operations
The current cheat sheet does not claim that smp_mb__after_atomic()
orders later RMW atomic operations, which it must, at least against
earlier RMW atomic operations and whatever precedes them. This commit
therefore adds the needed "Y".
