That's not hard to address. We just need two macros,
course you really meant integral types and pointers don't work, in which
case it should be BOOST_NO_CXX11_ATOMIC_INTEGRALS, but I doubt it. (Scalars
is not quite correct as well, because it includes floating point types and
enums, which also may not work on some gcc versions, I don't know. Atomic
floats or enums are rarely used in practice so it may be moot.)
