Another update here:

This adds support for ARM architecture v7. It seems to compile but
hasn't been properly tested.

I have noticed a few posts here from other people writing iPhone code;
if you would like to try out a shared_ptr that uses this for its atomic
reference count, please let me know.

I think it would be great to get Helge's code adopted as Boost.Atomic
ASAP and to port things like shared_ptr to use it. As usual the
limiting thing is presumably a review manager...

One thing that seems to be missing is a test that actually tries to
check for atomicity, i.e. by running multiple threads. Helge, do you
have something? Does anyone else have something that can be adapted
for this?

Happy New Year,
