Yeah.  In the majority of places this isn't a big problem because
access to shared memory looks like

        ... mess with shared state ...

and as long as the LWLock functions are extern and not inlineable
all is well.  But we do need to be more careful in places where
we're violating that coding rule, and the various stuff that looks
at or changes xid and xmin is violating it.

What I'm inclined to do for now is put "volatile" into those places in
procarray.c where there seems to be a risk.
