Subject: [boost] [Boost.Asio] Compiler warning in address_v6.hpp
From: Fraser Hutchison (fraser.hutchison_at_[hidden])

I'm new to boost and am looking for a bit of advice if possible.

asio/ip/address_v6.hpp lines 58 & 355 yield the following compiler
warnings when flag -Wmissing-braces (which is enabled by -Wall) is set:

missing braces around initializer for 'u_char [16]'
missing braces around initializer for 'in6_addr::<anonymous union>'

These can be avoided by amending e.g. line 58 from

boost::asio::detail::in6_addr_type tmp_addr = IN6ADDR_ANY_INIT;


boost::asio::detail::in6_addr_type tmp_addr = {{IN6ADDR_ANY_INIT}};

Is this worth submitting a bug report and patch for this, or not?
