Is there a reason util.concurrent has no AtomicDoubleArray class?
There is this throw-away line at the end of the package docs: "You can also
hold floats using Float.floatToIntBits and Float.intBitstoFloat conversions,
and doubles using Double.doubleToLongBits and Double.longBitsToDouble
But that doesn't seem to help if you want to use the atomic add methods, eg
AtomicLongArray.getAndAdd(int i, long delta), because for doubles a and b, it
is generally not true that Double.doubleToLongBits(a) +
Double.doubleToLongBits(b) = Double.doubleToLongBits(a + b).
Is there another way to do atomic double array ops that doesn't involve using
