Since watermark could be compared or set to garbage due to a data race
which would change the code logic, fix it by adding a pair of READ_ONCE()
and WRITE_ONCE() in those places.

The "failcnt" counter is tolerant of some degree of inaccuracy and is only
used to report stats, a data race will not be harmful, thus mark it as an
intentional data race using the data_race() macro.
