Subject: [boost] [integer] Bug in int_t<65>

I was trying to instantiate a boost::int_t<65>::least and I didn't got
an error. Unfortunately the size of the obtained type was 8.
I think that there is an error in the meta-function class as there is a
comparison without and with the sign bit in // **
template< int Bits > // bits (including sign) required
struct int_t : public detail::exact_signed_base_helper<Bits>
typedef typename detail::int_least_helper
(Bits-1 <= (int)(sizeof(boost::long_long_type) * CHAR_BIT))
+ // **
The same applies to uint_t.
The fix of course consists in checking
(Bits <= (int)(sizeof(boost::long_long_type) * CHAR_BIT)) +
Please could this be fixed in trunk?
