Subject: Re: [boost] [Smart Ptr] make_shared slower than shared_ptr(new) on VC++9 (and 10) with fix

I looked into make_shared.hpp you attached, and saw several bug in it. Do
you know how to remove it from ticket?
Here are the bugs:
1. verify_allocation should check passed pointer only in no-exception mode.
If exceptions are enabled, allocator::allocate is required to throw
bad_alloc, so no check is needed
2. sp_enable_shared_from_this() is called from shared_ptr constructor, so
there's no need to call it in make_shared()
3. I made make_shared.hpp to look differently as it was rewritten. No need
to make it looking same way.

Both #1 and #2 decrease performance of make_shared a little. Also, #1
prevents it from correct handling of allocation failure if exceptions are
I recommend you to use original version from patch
