Atomic is not some magic key word that you sprinkle over the code base to
give sense to code. As already written, the first patch was just undefined
behaviour and the second patch is unspecified result. Better? yes. Useful?
still no.

This patch is obviously useless and evidently not thought through.
Thinking stuff through is the responsibility of the patch author. It is
understandable that newbies fail to do this. It is understandable that
experienced developers sometimes fail to do this. But I am fed up with
Jean-Paul consistently failing to do it for whatever reasons.

This is not acceptable and I am not wasting more of my free time on this.
