As of 29.7.1 [atomics.types.operations] p. 7:The atomic_init definition "Non-atomically assigns the value" is not quite correct, as the atomic_init purpose is initialization.
Change 29.7.1 [atomics.types.operations] p. 7 as indicated:
void atomic_init(volatile A *object, C desired); void atomic_init(A *object, C desired);
Non-atomically assigns the value desired to *object. Concurrent access from another thread, even via an atomic operation, constitutes a data race.
