Not the variable, but it's type is qualified as volatile, this produces subtly
different codegen (IIRC volatile on the var would mean it is loaded thrice
also). Given it's use in atomics, and that data-depending ordering is
essential. I felt this to be important.  Similarly for immutable, which sets
the type as being const qualified.
