C++11 defines the following interface. There is no STD_ONCE_INIT

struct once_flag {
   constexpr once_flag() noexcept;
   once_flag(const once_flag&) = delete;
   once_flag& operator=(const once_flag&) = delete;
template<class Callable, class ...Args>
void call_once(once_flag& flag, Callable func, Args&&... args);

Could this once_flag be implemented using the trick you used to mask the
atomic dependency on the header file?
