Atomically changes the state of a atomic_flag pointed to by obj to set (true) and returns the previous value. The first version orders memory accesses according to memory_order_seq_cst, the second version orders memory accesses according to order.


obj - pointer to the atomic flag object to modify
order - the memory synchronization ordering for this operation: all values are permitted

Return value

The previous value held by the atomic flag pointed to by obj.
