> ArrayData has a mutable member null_count, that can be updated in a const 
> function. However null_count is not atomic, so it's subject to data race.
>  
> I guess Arrays are not thread-safe (which is reasonable), but at least they 
> should be thread-compatible so that concurrent access to const member 
> functions are fine.
> (The race looks "benign", but see [1][2])
