The initialization synchronization logic contains three conditions, which check:
1) Was `initialize` called and is it done?
2) Was `initialize` called and is it not done?
3) Are you the first to call `initialize`?

Condition (3) uses `compare_exchange_strong` between `initialized` and `false`.  This returns
`true` (and sets `initialized` to true) iff the caller is the first to reach that expression.

The second simultaneous caller of `initialize` will either satisify condition (2) or (3) and
then wait on `initializing`.  For the second caller, (2) and (3) are identical because `compare_exchange_strong`
between `true` and `false` will always return false, thereby putting the second caller into
the waiting loop.
