And exactly as in the theory of relativity, two people on different
CPU's can actually validly _disagree_ about the ordering of the
same event. There are things that act as "light-cones" and are
borders for what everybody can agree on, but basically, in the
absence of explicit locks, it is very possible that no such thing
as "ordering" may even exist.

Still experimental, not for inclusion, but given that I am now
finding more bugs in the rest of Linux than in this code, I suspect
that it is getting close.
