We talked about this before, you made that an unconditional atomic op on
an already hot line.

You need some words on why this isn't a problem. Either in a comment or
in the Changelog. You cannot leave such changes undocumented.

WTH is a minuend or subtrahend? Are you a wordsmith in your spare time
and like to make up your own words?

Also, isn't writing: x = max(0, x-y), far more readable to begin with?

Its a bit unfortunate that we update the copy in another function than
the original, but I think I see why you did that. But is it at all
likely that we do not need to update? That is, does that compare make
any sense?
