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...  ;-)

	http://lkml.kernel.org/r/20181127192234.GF10377@bombadil.infradead.org

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
