The only change NOT already merged is the change to
boost/detail/interlocked.hpp. I overlooked this when I merged the thread
changes from trunk to release a couple of weeks ago, and I wouldn't have
remembered if Jim hadn't raised the issue, since this is not one of the
main thread headers.

However, this is a relatively small change (some functions are no longer
marked dllimport), and it only affects this one compiler, since the code
expands to the same as before on other compilers.
