I'm surprised that this is the response. Why would you not write an
"alignas(alignof(spinlock<bool>))" for _lock_buffer (or use
aligned_storage, as Avi suggested, and have correct C++ code, instead
of "probably correct C++ code depending on implementation"?

Is this code not part of what you intend to submit for inclusion in Boost?
