I checked and there are about 37,000 harvested functions containing the 
volatile qualifier.  Next time, there will be even more since we'll be 
harvesting code from the FreeBSD kernel in addition to Linux.  It doesn't 
seem at all clear that it's productive to separate these out.  If people 
are really hating volatile and think it leads to unfair results, I'll 
probably just #define away volatile next time.
