    159 Two restarts are provided: one will skip over the faulting write instruction
    160 and proceed;  the other offers to unwatch the object and continue.

     162There is also an emulate restart.  In some common cases, the
     163faulting write instruction can be emulated, enabling the write
     164to be performed without having to unwatch the object (and therefore
     165let other threads potentially write to it).  If the faulting instruction
     166isn't recognized, the emulate restart will not be offered.
