* Result: Sometimes
* This litmus test shows that a release-acquire chain, while sufficient
* when there is but one non-reads-from (AKA non-rf) link, does not suffice
* if there is more than one. Of the three processes, only P1() reads from
* P0's write, which means that there are two non-rf links: P1() to P2()
* is a write-to-write link (AKA a "coherence" or just "co" link) and P2()
* to P0() is a read-to-write link (AKA a "from-reads" or just "fr" link).
* When there are two or more non-rf links, you typically will need one
* full barrier for each non-rf link. (Exceptions include some cases
* involving locking.)
