Sorry, I should have meant AbstractMap.keySet() and values(). Those were
broken under non-volatile keySet/values fields.

Others were merely a style/readability rewrites to match the suggested
use: avoiding inline assignments makes reasoning about load/stores
easier. We are quite probably missing those style tuneups in other
places, but this does not affect correctness.
