Unfortunately I've no access to Mac OS -s o it wouldn't currently
compile on Mac OS. I didn't test the preformance because I replace the
current implementation of context switch (ucontext_t on UNIX and WIN 32
Fiber API) with assembler. If this is finished it should work much
faster because it preserves only the required registers and does not
save the signal mask (which involves an system call). By this way I can
provide an implementatio nfor Mac OS too.
I've an git repo which contains the boost-1.42 with additional libs -
boost.atomic, boost.move, boost.fiber and boost.task. It is available
