Thanks so much, some feedback:

(1)
I could not find the table of contents appear in the HTML output for this.
Basically this list in the beginning doesn't render:
1. INTRODUCTION
2. BACKGROUND
3. A SIMPLE EXAMPLE
4. A SELECTION OF MEMORY MODELS
5. ORDERING AND CYCLES

Could we add a proper TOC with sections? My motivation for ReST here would be
to make the sections jumpable since it is a large document.

Also could we make the different sections appear as a tree in the left
sidebar?

(2) Arguably several function names in the document HTML output should appear
in monospace fonting and/or referring to the documentation for real function
names, but these can be fixed as we go, I guess.

(3) Things like smp_load_acquire() and spin_lock() should probably refer to
the documentation for those elsewhere..

(4) I would argue that every occurence of
A ->(some dependency) B should be replaced with fixed size font in the HTML
results.

Arguably it is better IMO if the whole document is fixed size font in the
HTML output because so many things need to be fixed size, but that my just be
my opinion.

thanks,

- Joel
