Generating the Initial State

CMC computes the initial state as follows. Starting from a copy of the global variables (as initialized by the linker), CMC calls the initialization function for each process. The initial state consists of the states of the processes immediately after their initialization functions have been called, along with the values of the initialized shared memory.
