Subject[RFC 0/3] tools/memory-model: Add litmus tests for atomic APIs
A recent discussion raises up the requirement for having test cases for
atomic APIs:

, and since we already have a way to generate a test module from a
litmus test with klitmus[1]. It makes sense that we add more litmus
tests for atomic APIs into memory-model.

So I begin to do this and the plan is to add the litmus tests we already
use in atomic_t.txt, ones from Paul's litmus collection[2], and any
other valuable litmus test we come up while adding the previous two
kinds of tests.

This patchset finishes the first part (adding atomic_t.txt litmus
tests). I also improve the atomic_t.txt to make it consistent with the
litmus tests.

One thing to note is patch #2 requires a modification to herd and I just
made a PR to Luc's repo:

, so if this patchset looks good to everyone and someone plans to take
it (and I assume is Paul), please wait until that PR is settled. And
probably we need to bump the required herd version because of it.

Comments and suggesions are welcome!
