There are any plans to include LongAdder in JDK(I searched 
concurrency-interest at cs.oswego.edu on MarkMail but I coudn't find an 
answer to my question)? There are some good use cases for this 
structure, like holding a hit ratio? You might use a concurrent map but 
threads will block when updating atomic hits and misses counters, which 
happens in my case(16 threads).

Is this the stable version of the LongAdder? 

Thank you,
Adrian Tarau.
