Subject: [boost] [boost, config, context, log, 1.58] address-model and architecture detection

for some time on develop, top-level Jamroot used to deduce address-model and architecture from
compiler. The only issue was that both properties would be added to targets paths when not
necessary. Fix for that has been just committed, for develop:

and I performed these operations on master:

- Merged all of Boost.Build changes:

- Cherry-picked one Boost.Context change:

- Cherry-picked one Boost.Log change:

- Cherry-picked two root project changes and updated pointers to Context and Log:

With that, "./b2 -n" in up-to-date checkout of superproject works fine on Linux.
Also, "./b2 -n --with-context --with-system" works fine, no address-model elements in
path. Putting explicit address-model=64 does not change path. Putting explicit
address-model=32 does add this element to path, as expected.

Note that:

- I did not merge any other Boost.Context or Boost.Log changes.
- Nothing was required for Boost.Config, since it was merged earlier.

I'd appreciate if people test current state of master branch, and report any concerns.
