Yeah I get that. But when I perform a move construction, should I need
to create new buckets and copy items from the old map? What I was
trying to achieve was different. I was trying to get the reference of
_buckets of the old map and give this to the new map. After this was
done, I was just creating few empty buckets and giving it to the old
map. This means that I was hijacking the reference of the buckets that
were being used by some threads and moved it to new map. Looks like
this way of implementation is not right.

>From your reply, I understand what I was trying to is not the correct
way to implement move construction. Ideally, should I create new
buckets and pick items one by one from the old map's buckets and copy
it? And while doing it, like you said, I will be marking the new map's
buckets as locked (1) and after this process is complete, I just go
ahead and mark all buckets of old map as dead (2)? Is that right?

Okay. So who takes care of getting rid of the dead buckets?

So, if "-fsanitize=undefined" a correct flag? I am also getting the
same compiler error. Could you let me know which version of gcc should
I use?

I will try this out and let you know later.
