There are 3 versions of clamp(), they are all slightly different, and
there are no Boost equivalents.

clamp.hpp is carefully designed to handle the case where Beast needs
to limit the size of a buffer to either max std::size_t or some larger
number that is represented as a 64-bit unsigned regardless of whether
the 32-bit or 64-bit address model is being built.

This ensures that 32-bit builds of Beast are capable of digesting
information whose size is stored in a 64-bit unsigned. For example, a
32-bit build of Beast can still process a chunked message body that
exceeds 2^32 bits in size.

The other file helps sweep zlib's numerous integer conversion warnings
under the rug without modifying the sources too much (so that I can
compare the Beast version against the original more easily).
