Subject[PATCH tools/memory-model 0/4] Documentation updates and fixes
Hello!

This patch series adds some documentation and fixes to the Linux-kernel
memory model (LKMM):

1. Add more text to meomry-barrier.txt to de-emphasize
smp_read_barrier_depends().

2. Remove mention of the now-obsolete docker and gentoo images
from README.

3. Add documentation for the new ISA2+pooncelock+pooncelock+pombonce
litmus test.

4. Update the removal of rb-dep, smp_read_barrier_depends(), and
lockless_dereference() to reflect feedback.

Thanx, Paul
