> Notes on Write->Read race condition.
> ------------------------------------
> Write->Read data races occur when one thread writes a shared memory location (address)
while another thread concurrently reads the same memory location.  
> The shared memory location may be referred to by (variable) name, pointer, or even a
function such as memcpy().  
> The following example uses a variable name:
> 1st access by first thread
> S1: sharedX = privateA
> 2nd access by second thread
> S2: privateB = sharedX
> If sharedX is a variable visible to all threads and privateA and privateB are local variables
visible only to the thread where each was declared,
>  concurrent execution of the above statements by multiple threads results in a "race"
on the value to be read from sharedX.   
> Since the order of execution among threads is unpredictable, it is unknown which value
will be available in sharedX to be stored into privateB.  
> This results in non-deterministic software, or software prone to produce different results
each time it is executed. 
> _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
> If it not affect correctness of execution I will mark it by special API for prevention
of further alarms on this race.
