#1 (idle and read phase) and #5 (idle and write phase), and also in #6
(readers waiting, write phase) if we prefer writers.
If we observe any other state, we are allowed to fail and do not need to
"synchronize memory" as specified by POSIX (hence relaxed MO is
sufficient for the first load and the CAS failure path).
We face a similar issue as in tryrdlock in that we need to both avoid
live-locks / starvation and must not fail spuriously (see there for
further comments) -- and thus must loop until we get a definitive
observation or state change. */
