I'm not really sure if these memory barriers are needed, ie I haven't seen the test fail without them. I put them in because I think that all threads need to see the zeroed memory in flags

ARM should have the same problem AFAIK

Changes are correct, a memory barrier is needed between allocating/reseting values to zero and publishing the pointer. That way, another thread see the published pointer only once all of the zeroing is complete.

In other places, an "instruction sync" might be sufficient, but the memory barrier is certainly fine too (though possibly a bit more expensive)
