We would still need at least a pointer from the Linux kernel to that
documentation, but I am happy either way. We probably need examples of
the common cases, but probably not a full exposition of all the available
herd7 edges.

Should this be in the herdtools7 documentation, or as added detail
from a variation on the "diyone7 -bell linux-kernel.bell -show edges"
command? If the latter, I suppose that the ones coming from the .bell
file might simply be labelled as such.

Thanx, Paul
