      Description

      In CMS, the _overflow_list which is part of a lock-free protocol is being manipulated without volatile specifier.

      This leads to less robust behavior, and using volatiles is preferred.

      This is related to JDK-8033552, but was split out to a separate CR, because that one was a bit too long.
