> Have you thought about using an AtomicLong instead?
Yes, but AtomicLong doesn't have an atomic operation for
what we're trying to do. We're trying to compute the function
f(long i) = 0 if i==long_max else i+i
AtomicLong only has things like set, add, increment.
As for why we're trying to compute the above function instead
of a simple increment (and letting the result overflow into
the negatives), I don't know. I will ask Deepak when he returns.
