I've just read the paper "High Performance Dynamic Lock-Free Hash Tables
and List-Based Sets" by Maged M. Michael at
http://www.cs.tau.ac.il/~shanir/reading%20group/p73-michael.pdf and wonder
if the subject has become feasible. The paper basically states that the
algorithms can be implemented on most current processor architectures
using CAS or LL/CS instructions, rather than rare DCAS/CAS2 instructions.
Is that true?
Is there something going on in boost with regards to the subject?
