Looking at the implementation of shared_count<>, it seems as though it
always uses a mutex for incrementing and decrementing the counter.

Is there a reason why we aren't using atomic_count instead? In the
worst case, it will have the same performance, but in the best case,
it can be significantly faster (BOOST_USE_ASM_ATOMIC_H).
