The read once here doesn't protect against any races, but just against
creative compilers doing funny stuff that might really break code
logic. I guess for symmetry we could throw the WRITE_ONCE on the write
side, but it really shouldn't matter, the entire thing is racy by
design. We0d also only ever need the write once on the unregister
call.
