    Windows: AFSCreate avoid race leading to NULL dereference
    If a test for NULL is performed ahead of an assignment and then
    use of the assigned value, there is a race which can result in
    the assigned value being NULL if the value being assigned is
    altered by another thread.
    Perform the assignment first then test based upon that.
