It is OK. I will update the documentation to clarify this point.

Great. Does it mean that Boost.Thread must link with Boost.Atomic when
when the spinlock pool is needed?
Is there a know platform/compiler for which the condition


is false?

I have included your implementation conditionally in separated files
once_atomic.hpp and once_atomic.cpp. I will commit it this evening after
I run my regression tests and I'll activate your implementation in order
to see how the Boost regression tests behave. I hope that everything
will be OK.

Thanks for your contribution.
