Subject: [PATCH v3] refcount_t vs. atomic_t ordering differences

Changes in v3:

 - fixes from Kees incorporated apart from concrete examples
   for practical cases.
 - document converted to rst and linked under core-api


Changes in v2:

 - typos and english are fixed based on Randy Dunlap's
   proof reading
 - structure of document improved: 
     * definitions now in the beginning
     * confusing examples removed
     * less redundancy overall and more up-to-the-point text
 - definitions try to follow LKMM defined in
   github.com/aparri/memory-model/blob/master/Documentation/explanation.txt
