It's impossible to write safe code when exceptions can occur at any
time, except when you already happen have the needed atomic primitives
Let's say we have a mutable doubly linked list (the list have first
and last pointers, each node has next and prev pointers). Please show
how to append a first node if exceptions can occur at any time. Not
adding the element at all if an asynchronous exception is coming is
acceptable, but corrupting the list structure is not.
