;-)

Will fix when squashing.

Assuming we keep these patches, agreed. Something like this for the
aggregated single commit, perhaps:

tools/memory-model: Convert underscores to hyphens

Typical cat-language code uses hyphens for word separators in
identifiers, but several LKMM identifiers use underscores instead.
This commit therefore converts the underscores in the .bell and
.cat files for smp_mb__before_atomic(), smp_mb__after_atomic(),
and smp_mb__after_spinlock() to hyphens.

You lost me here. Or are you asking for a commit log similar to that
provided by Akira for his forward-port of Alan's unrelated patch? If
so, please see above.

Thanx, Paul
