// The routines exported by this module are subtle.  If you use them, even if
// you get the code right, it will depend on careful reasoning about atomicity
// and memory ordering; it will be less readable, and harder to maintain.  If
// you plan to use these routines, you should have a good reason, such as solid
// evidence that performance would otherwise suffer, or there being no
// alternative.  You should assume only properties explicitly guaranteed by the
// specifications in this file.  You are almost certainly _not_ writing code
// just for the x86; if you assume x86 semantics, x86 hardware bugs and
// implementations on other archtectures will cause your code to break.  If you
// do not know what you are doing, avoid these routines, and use a Mutex.
//
// It is incorrect to make direct assignments to/from an atomic variable.
// You should use one of the Load or Store routines.  The NoBarrier
// versions are provided when no barriers are needed:
//   NoBarrier_Store()
//   NoBarrier_Load()
// Although there are currently no compiler enforcement, you are encouraged
// to use these.
