A quick workaround is to always link against the static Boost.Atomic (see
lockfree_static_atomic.diff attached).

Well, it would make a good header only library, because only the static
lockpool is compiled into the "library". But this might be required if Atomic
is linked against several libraries.

The other solution would be to create a static library only, as in
