Comment (by wnbell):

 Re: relative tolerance

 I suppose there's no standard definition for the relative tolerance, but
 I've typically seen
 norm(b - A*x)/norm(b - A*x0).  In looking around it appears that norm(b -
 A*x)/norm(b) is actually more common and happens to also be the choice of
 MATLAB.  Therefore I'd recommend sticking with the current approach.

 Re: initial solution x0
