In your patch you say
+// For C++11 call_once interface the compiler MUST support constexpr.
+// Otherwise once_flag would be initialized during dynamic
initialization stage, which is not thread-safe.
I'm not an expert on the C++11 wording. Could you elaborate why
once_flag would be initialized during dynamic initialization stage?
