      Documentation/locking/atomic: Add documents for new atomic_t APIs · 706eeb3e
      Peter Zijlstra authored
      Since we've vastly expanded the atomic_t interface in recent years the
      existing documentation is woefully out of date and people seem to get
      confused a bit.
      
      Start a new document to hopefully better explain the current state of
      affairs.
      
      The old atomic_ops.txt also covers bitmaps and a few more details so
      this is not a full replacement and we'll therefore keep that document
      around until such a time that we've managed to write more text to cover
      its entire.
      
      Also please, ReST people, go away.
