hi oliver,

i just saw, that you checked in a lockfree fifo implementation to the
boost sandbox.
it looks like an implementation of the michael/scott queue, isn't it? if
so, i suppose, you are missing a thread-safe memory reclamation
mechanism ...
some time ago, i wrote a boost-style implementation of this data
structure, not sure, if you came across it [1] ... maybe it would make
sense to join our efforts in implementing a lockfree queue and get it
into boost?

best, tim
