Subject[PATCH RFC memory-model 0/6] LKMM updates
Hello!

This series contains updates for the Linux-kernel memory model:

1-3. Add SRCU support, courtesy of Alan Stern.

4. Update README for adding of SRCU support.

5. Update memory-barriers.txt on enforcing heavy ordering for
port-I/O accesses, courtesy of Will Deacon. This one needs
an ack, preferably by someone from Intel. Matthew Wilcox
posted some feedback from an Intel manual here, which might
be considered to be a close substitute, but... ;-)

6. Update Documentation/explanation.txt to include SRCU support,
courtesy of Alan Stern.

7. Dynamically check SRCU lock-to-unlock matching, courtesy of
Luc Maranget. This needs an ack.

Thanx, Paul
