I presume the parens around std::min are to prevent VC expanding the "min"
macro. If so, then adding the expliction specialization should do that
anyway, so the code can read:

        std::min<std::size_t>(it->m_alloc.size, 8 )

Which remarkably is only one character longer than the unfixed code (and
doesn't have a c-style cast).
