// if once.Do(f) is called multiple times, only the first call will invoke f,
// even if f has a different value in each invocation. A new instance of
// Once is required for each function to execute.
// Do is intended for initialization that must be run exactly once. Since f
// is niladic, it may be necessary to use a function literal to capture the
// arguments to a function to be invoked by Do:
// config.once.Do(func() { config.init(filename) })
// Because no call to Do returns until the one call to f returns, if f causes
// Do to be called, it will deadlock.
// If f panics, Do considers it to have returned; future calls of Do return
// without calling f.

// if atomic.CompareAndSwapUint32(&o.done, 0, 1) {

// This implementation would not implement that guarantee:
// given two simultaneous calls, the winner of the cas would
// call f, and the second would return immediately, without
// waiting for the first's call to f to complete.
// This is why the slow path falls back to a mutex, and why
// the atomic.StoreUint32 must be delayed until after f returns.
