(* Fundamental coherence ordering *)
(**********************************)

(* Sequential Consistency Per Variable *)
let com = rf | co | fr
acyclic po-loc | com as coherence

(* Atomic Read-Modify-Write *)

(* Preserved Program Order *)

(*
 * Happens Before: Ordering from the passage of time.
 * No fences needed here for prop because relation confined to one process.
 *)
let hb = ppo | rfe | ((prop \ id) & int)

(* Propagation: Each non-rf link needs a strong fence. *)

(* RCU *)
(*******)

(*
 * Effect of read-side critical section proceeds from the rcu_read_lock()
 * onward on the one hand and from the rcu_read_unlock() backwards on the
 * other hand.
 *)
let rscs = po ; crit^-1 ; po?

(*
 * The synchronize_rcu() strong fence is special in that it can order not
 * one but two non-rf relations, but only in conjunction with an RCU
 * read-side critical section.
 *)
let rcu-link = hb* ; pb* ; prop

(*
 * Any sequence containing at least as many grace periods as RCU read-side
 * critical sections (joined by rcu-link) acts as a generalized strong fence.

(* rb orders instructions just as pb does *)
let rb = prop ; rcu-fence ; hb* ; pb*

irreflexive rb as rcu

(*
 * The happens-before, propagation, and rcu constraints are all
 * expressions of temporal ordering.  They could be replaced by
 * a single constraint on an "executes-before" relation, xb:
 *
 * let xb = hb | pb | rb
 * acyclic xb as executes-before
