C atomic_load( const volatile A* obj );
C atomic_load_explicit( const volatile A* obj, memory_order order );
Atomically loads and returns the current value of the atomic variable pointed to by
obj. The operation is atomic read operation.
The first version orders memory accesses according to memory_order_seq_cst, the second version orders memory accesses according to
order must be one of memory_order_relaxed, memory_order_consume, memory_order_acquire or memory_order_seq_cst. Otherwise the behavior is undefined.
This is a generic function defined for all atomic object types
A. The argument is pointer to a volatile atomic type to accept addresses of both non-volatile and volatile (e.g. memory-mapped I/O) atomic objects, and volatile semantic is preserved when applying this operation to volatile atomic objects.
C is the non-atomic type corresponding to
It is unspecified whether the name of a generic function is a macro or an identifier declared with external linkage. If a macro definition is suppressed in order to access an actual function (e.g. parenthesized like (atomic_load)(...)), or a program defines an external identifier with the name of a generic function, the behavior is undefined.
