tools/memory-order: Update the cheat-sheet to show that 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".
