The problem was more that solaris studio (only) complained that I was 
losing the volatile qualifier when I did it the straight forward way 
(just assigning from the volatile).
I tried again, and it doesn't seem to complain any longer. I must have 
done something slightly different the first time I tried this - sorry 
about that.

If you prefer just assign from the volatile, then here is a new webrev 
with that variant. I agree that probably looks better.
