Subject: [boost] [context] - Mac OS X fix

It seems that while I was off using an old (but stable) version of Boost.Context Oliver has gone and rewritten it (again) and it has been approved (awesome)!

I decided I should migrate my code to the latest API but it appears that no one tested it on OS X.

I had to update the fcontext_x86_64_sysv_macho_gas.S:

1) @PLT is an ELF concept that generates the error: junk `@PLT' after expression
2) I had to add an '_' before align_stack otherwise things didn't link.

 + call _align_stack /* align stack */
  - call align_stack_at_PLT /* align stack */

 - call _exit_at_PLT /* exit application */
 + call _exit /* exit application */

With that fix, you can add OS X x64 to your tested platforms.

What version of boost will include Context?
