i've been using boost.atomic in my lockfree library. from my experience, it is
well designed, but it would benefit from some contributions to support more
platforms. there is some fallback code using a spinlock pool, but native atomics
for compilers other than gcc are still missing.
so it would be great if people, who are using unsupported compilers could
contribute some implementations ...
