hi all,

i would like to submit a small library of lock-free data structures for

boost.lockfree provides implementations of lock-free data structures.
lock-free data structures can be accessed by multiple threads without
the necessity of blocking synchronization primitives such as guards.
lock-free data structures can be used in real-time systems, where
blocking algorithms may lead to high worst-case execution times, to
avoid priority inversion, or to increase the scalability for
multi-processor machines.

boost.lockfree provides:
* boost::lockfree::fifo, a lock-free fifo queue
* boost::lockfree::stack, a lock-free stack

the code is available from the boost vault:

and from my personal git repository:

the documentation is available at:

thanks in advance,
