What did you do? Please include the actual source code causing the issue, as well as the command that you used to run ESLint.

module.exports = function (fn, opts) {
  const concurrency = Object.assign({ concurrency: 1 }, opts).concurrency
  if (typeof concurrency !== 'number' || isNaN(concurrency) || concurrency <= 0) {
    throw new TypeError(`Invalid concurrency value: ${concurrency}`)

  let count = 0
  const queue = []

  return async function (...args) {
    try {
      count += 1
      if (count > concurrency) {
        await new Promise((resolve) => queue.push({ resolve }))

      return await fn(...args)
    } finally {
      count -= 1
      if (queue.length > 0) queue.shift().resolve()

What did you expect to happen?

No error reported.

What actually happened? Please include the actual, raw output from ESLint.

make-concurrent/index.js:19:7: Possible race condition: `count` might be reassigned based on an outdated value of `count`. (require-atomic-updates)

This looks like a false positive to me. I don't see why line 19 (the count -= 1 in the finally block) would use an outdated value of count.

Is this the intended behavior of this rule? If so, what is the race condition here?

Are you willing to submit a pull request to fix this bug?

Thank you for your report.

Indeed, this is false positive.

The rule checks read-update-write which is across await/yield expressions. That code reads count before an await expression and writes the count after the await expression, but those are independent. Currently, the rule doesn't check if the update is independent or not.

Thanks for confirming the bug and for the explanation of why it is happening.

Unfortunately, it looks like there wasn't enough interest from the team
or community to implement this change. While we wish we'd be able to
accommodate everyone's requests, we do need to prioritize. We've found
that accepted issues failing to be implemented after 90 days tend to
never be implemented, and as such, we close those issues.
This doesn't mean the idea isn't interesting or useful, just that it's
not something the team can commit to.

Thanks for contributing to ESLint and we appreciate your understanding.

How about this #13915?
