Applied this and the other two series to the locking tree, thanks Paul!

I ended up editing some of the changelogs and titles, to better organize them:

99c12749b172: tools/memory-model: Add reference for 'Simplifying ARM concurrency'
1a00b4554d47: tools/memory-model: Update ASPLOS information
5ccdb7536ebe: MAINTAINERS, tools/memory-model: Update e-mail address for Andrea Parri
05604e7e3adb: tools/memory-model: Fix coding style in 'lock.cat'
cee0321a404f: tools/memory-model: Remove out-of-date comments and code from lock.cat
30b795df11a1: tools/memory-model: Improve mixed-access checking in lock.cat

2fb6ae162f25: tools/memory-model: Add scripts to test memory model
d17013e0bac6: tools/memory-model: Fix coding style in 'linux-kernel.def'
bf8c6d963d16: tools/memory-model: Model 'smp_store_mb()'
bfd403bb3617: tools/memory-order: Update the cheat-sheet to show that smp_mb__after_atomic() orders later RMW operations
35bb6ee67906: tools/memory-order: Improve key for SELF and SV
a839195186a2: tools/memory-model: Fix cheat sheet typo
5b62832c1e52: tools/memory-model: Update required version of herdtools7
9d036883a179: tools/memory-model: Redefine rb in terms of rcu-fence
1ee2da5f9b5a: tools/memory-model: Rename link and rcu-path to rcu-link and rb
1362ae43c503: locking/spinlocks: Clean up comment and #ifndef for {,queued_}spin_is_locked()
c6f5d02b6a0f: locking/spinlocks/arm64: Remove smp_mb() from arch_spin_is_locked()
b7e4aadef28f: locking/spinlocks: Document the semantics of spin_is_locked()
173af2613efd: locking/Documentation: Use `warning` RST directive
fc7bdc90249b: locking/Documentation: Fix incorrect example code
e89641dd038a: locking/memory-barriers.txt/kokr: Update Korean translation to de-emphasize smp_read_barrier_depends() some more
e2ba8041f2ed: locking/memory-barriers.txt/kokr: Update Korean translation to fix description of data dependency barriers
df9e0cc85c01: locking/memory-barriers.txt/kokr: Update Korean translation to cross-reference "tools/memory-model/"
1ea32723c42a: locking/memory-barriers.txt/kokr: Update Korean translation to de-emphasize smp_read_barrier_depends()
eabed716672c: locking/memory-barriers.txt/kokr: Update Korean translation to indicate that READ_ONCE() now implies smp_barrier_depends()
5846581e3563: locking/memory-barriers.txt: Fix broken DMA vs. MMIO ordering example

In particular the Korean translation commits are IMHO more readable in this
fashion. I also simplified the translation commits internally:

Translate this commit to Korean:

f28f0868feb1 ("locking/memory-barriers: De-emphasize smp_read_barrier_depends() some more")

Thanks,

Ingo
