Boost.ASIO is auto generated by a script from standalone ASIO. Some
of the things it does is to wrap the asio namespace with a boost
namespace, the ASIO_ macros with a BOOST_ prefix and so on.

Tweaking that script to prepend a log_internal namespace and a
BOOST_LOG_INTERAL_ instead should be trivial. I'd have your build
system optionally git clone the standalone ASIO repo and optionally
refresh a locally kept copy.

BTW Boost.ASIO lags standalone ASIO by up to a year. They are not ABI
compatible. Indeed right now standalone ASIO has deprecated
null_buffers, so any code using null_buffers (surely a lot) is
considered legacy. Or put another way, the Networking TS won't have
