#1691: [Random] Brokem MSVC workaround

 The problem in unform_int described in ticket #1423 also exists in the
 uniform_smallint class, and can be fixed in the same manner (disabling the
 workaround for VC9). This isn't found by the regression tests as the
 uniform_smallint tests are commented out in random_test.cpp.

 1) The workaround in question referes to an '_impl' class member, which no
 longer exists.[[BR]]
 2) The workaround is inside a "!defined(BOOST_NO_MEMBER_TEMPLATE_FRIENDS)"
 block. BOOST_NO_MEMBER_TEMPLATE_FRIENDS is defined for all MSVC versions
 prior to 9, so it's never used anyway.

 Basically, the workaround seems to serve no purpose.
