Subject[PATCH v4 4/4] Documentation/litmus-tests/atomic: Add a test for smp_mb__after_atomic()
Date
We already use a litmus test in atomic_t.txt to describe atomic RMW +
smp_mb__after_atomic() is stronger than acquire (both the read and the
write parts are ordered). So make it a litmus test in atomic-tests
directory, so that people can access the litmus easily.

Additionally, change the processor numbers "P1, P2" to "P0, P1" in
atomic_t.txt for the consistency with the processor numbers in the
litmus test, which herd can handle.

This should not happen; but a hypothetical atomic_inc_acquire() --
(void)atomic_fetch_inc_acquire() for instance -- would allow the outcome,
because it would not order the W part of the RMW against the following
WRITE_ONCE. Thus:

- P1 P2
+ P0 P1

t = LL.acq *y (0)
