I was referring to the related discussions in comp.programming.threads and
comp.lang.c++.moderated for those who is interested in that subject and
explicitly told that I have no intention to discuss it here.

No, I don't. It's just my answer to the initial OP's question that caused some
discussion about volatile in general.
