In the second case, new_fdt->open_fds has just been filled by a
memcpy, and no-one can possibly have written to that cache line in the
meantime.

In the first case, testing is also likely wasteful if fdt->max_fds is
less than half the number of bits in a cacheline (fdt->close_on_exec and
fdt->open_fds are always contiguous, and the latter is unconditionally
written to).
