#10520: Conversion warning in intrusive/detail/utilities.hpp

 When I compile the following simple code test.cpp

 #include <boost/intrusive/detail/utilities.hpp>

 int main()
   return 0;
 with g++ version 4.8.1, Boost 1.56, and the compilation line
 g++ -I/home/mbradle/boost -Wconversion test.cpp
 I get the warning
 In file included from test.cpp:1:0:
 /home/mbradle/boost/boost/intrusive/detail/utilities.hpp: In function
 â€˜float boost::intrusive::detail::fast_log2(float)’:
 /home/mbradle/boost/boost/intrusive/detail/utilities.hpp:592:18: warning:
 conversion to ‘float’ from ‘int’ may alter its value [-Wconversion]
     return (val + log_2);
 Casting log_2 as a float removes the warning, but, given that I do not get
 this warning if I compile against Boost 1.55 and that I see no difference
 between the fast_log2 routines in the two versions, I suspect that casting
 is not the correct fix. Thanks, and best wishes.
