      Description

      New [volatile] AST attribute that adds required custom modifier System.Runtime.CompilerServices.IsVolatile on a field.
      Subsequent accesses (load or store) to such fields have IL "volatile." prefix.
      Fields that are declared volatile are not subject to compiler optimizations that assume access by a single thread.
      This ensures that the most up-to-date value is present in the field at all times.

      Usage:

      class Test:
          [volatile]
          public static Value = 42
      
      print Test.Value
