Oh my eyes. What are these doing?

The volatiles are a worry - volatile is said to be basically-always-wrong
in-kernel, although we've never managed to document why, and i386
cheerfully uses it in readb() and friends.

Perhaps if you can describe presisely what's going on here, alternatives
might be suggested.
