JavaMemoryModel: What do I do with volatiles?

I'm busy fixing volatiles in HotSpot.

Some months ago I got a "here's what to do with volatiles" list from
Doug Lea.
Then about a month ago there was this flurry of emails about volatiles,
no obvious conclusion (at least not obvious to me). So what do I do
with them
now? Is there a conservatively safe thing to do, that I can weaken
later if
the JMM decides it's OK?
