OK, thanks, this is clear enough in general.

But you need to explain how the user can get the toolstack to set the
domain's claim to zero.

And you need to explain whether the memory counted in
outstanding_claims value is _also_ counted as free memory, or as
memory belonging to its respective domain(s).

This needs wrapping to 75 columns or so.

Also, is there a way to find out which domain these claims belong to ?
I didn't see it in your previous patch.
