It might be worth discussing this point a little more fully. The
set of tests in tools/memory-model/litmus-tests/ is deliberately rather
limited. Paul has a vastly more expansive set of litmus tests in a
GitHub repository, and I am doubtful about how many new tests we want
to keep in the kernel source.

Perhaps it makes sense to have tests corresponding to all the examples
in Documentation/, perhaps not. How do people feel about this?
