Subject: Re: [PATCH v2 1/4] Documentation: LKMM: Move MP+onceassign+derefonce
 to new litmus-tests/rcu/

Hi Joel,

Sorry for the late response but I've noticed some glitches.

MP+onceassign+derefonce.litmus is called out in
tools/memory-model/Documentation/recipes.txt as a representative example
of RCU related litmus test.

So I think it should be kept under tools/memory-model/litmus-tests.

Further RCU-related litmus tests can be added under Documentation/litmus-tests/.

IIUC, this change is not picked up by tip tree yet. So we have time to respin
the series targeting v5.9.

Please note that later patches to add atomic litmus tests under
Documentation/litmus-tests/ by Boqun put README as
Documentation/litums-tests/atomic/README.

This patch's location of RCU's README as Documentation/litmus-tests/README
looks asymmetric to me.

I'm OK with either merging atomic's README with the top-level one or
moving RCU's README to under Documentation/litmus-tests/rcu.

Joel, Boqum, can you sort out the location of README?

        Thanks, Akira
