#11032: boost::offset_ptr needs explicit ctor

Milestone: To Be Determined | Component: interprocess
  Version: Boost 1.57.0 | Severity: Problem
 Keywords: |
 Both the libc++ std library implementation and the MSVC library
 implementation require that their pointer types can be upcast.

 The list and tree data structures have a class hierarchy of node types and
 often seem to pass pointers to the base types (or to offset_ptr<void>)
 that are then upcast to the most derived types. offset_ptr has no explicit
 constructor that allows upcasts, only implicit ctors for downcasts.

 We have patched our version of offset_ptr with this constructor:

 //!Explicit constructor from other offset_ptr. Never throws.
 template<class T2>
 explicit offset_ptr(const offset_ptr<T2, DifferenceType, OffsetType,
 OffsetAlignment> &ptr
    , typename ipcdetail::enable_if_c<
    !ipcdetail::is_convertible<T2*, PointedType*>::value
>::type * = 0)
