The Peterson-Burns's fix in their paper in FOCS'87 is erroneous as pointed out by Haldar and Vidyasankar in a report, see history in the Haldar-Vitanyi paper below. The problem in the errata is resolved by M. Li, J. Tromp and P.M.B. Vitanyi, How to share concurrent wait-free variables, J. Assoc. Comp. Mach., 43 (1996), 723-746. giving an optimal wait-free atomic multiwriter multireader register from wait-free atomic 1-writer 1-reader registers using bounded timestamps (by projections of the method also wait-free atomic multiwriter multireader register from wait-free atomic 1-writer multireader register, and wait-free atomic 1-writer multireader register from wait-free atomic 1-writer 1-reader register). It turns out that the method in the Vitanyi-Awerbuch original bounded multiwriter system (made error-free) is strong enough to implement a concurren bounded timestamp system from wait-free atomic 1-writer multireader registers S.
