Backing off from the issues of exactly what guarantees we are going to make,
a recent paper by Arvind and others at MIT may be of interest. It was
published at ISCA99:
Commit-Reconcile & Fences (CRF): A New Memory Model for Architects
and Compiler Writers, X. Shen, Arvind, L. Rudolph
It doesn't solve our problems by any means. It doesn't touch the
safety issues we've been discussing, and I'm still not sure if
it will really work for compiler writers. In many ways, it is
similar to the old Java memory model, but without some of the problems
the old JMM had.
