SubjectRe: [GIT PULL tools] Linux kernel memory model
Hi Paul,
thanks to you and all the involved guys for this useful tool.

I give it a try today and found that by installing herd7 by just
following the instruction in herdtools7/INSTALL.md, and precisely
installing it via:

opam install herdtools7

it seems to give you a tool which fails to run the basic example in
your README with this error:

File "./linux-kernel.def", line 44, characters 29-30: unexpected '-' (in macros)

As suggested by Will, by building instead herd7 HEAD (commit 44d69c2)
everything works fine.

Maybe it's a know issue, in case just ignore me. :)

Otherwise, maybe it can be worth to add to the README a note on which
minimum version of the herd7 tool is required.

opma version (not working) : 7.47, Rev: exported
master version (working for me) : 7.47+7(dev), Rev: 44d69c2b1b5ca0f97bd138899d31532ee5e4e084

Cheers Patrick
