In this age of multicores and multithreaded applications, today at work I did try to mark an entire struct as volatile and I couldn't compile a simple application. Here is a simple replicate:

#include <memory>

using namespace std;

struct Data
    shared_ptr<int> p;

int main()
    static Data volatile cData;
    cData.p = make_shared<int>(9);
    return 0;

volatile.cpp:14:13: error: no viable overloaded '='
   cData.p = make_shared<int>(9);

I think it would be convenient to fix this issue in this age of parallel programming.
