#1069: _InterlockedExchange, _InterlockedExchangeAdd have wrong signature
 Reporter: Braden McDaniel <braden_at_[hidden]> | Type: Bugs
   Status: new | Milestone: To Be Determined
Component: Building Boost | Version: release 1.34.0
 Severity: Showstopper | Keywords:
 Microsoft describes the signature of {{{_InterlockedExchange}}} as
 extern "C" LONG __cdecl _InterlockedExchange(LPLONG volatile Target, LONG
 See http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/f24ya7ct(VS.71).aspx

 In boost/detail/intrinsic.hpp, this function gets declared as
 extern "C" __declspec(dllimport) long __stdcall InterlockedExchange( long
 volatile *, long );

 The problem is that {{{LPLONG volatile}}} is equivalent to {{{long *
 volatile}}}, not {{{long volatile *}}}. This results in compilation
 failures in the presence of a correct declaration of this function; i.e.,
 the compiler complains that you cannot overload C functions.
