The compiler is not excluded from testing I believe, but marked as
expected to fail. This is because of a compiler bug when using strict
ansi mode. (It evaluates templated expression too eagerly, and therefore
a static assert fires.) It works fine for the other compiler modes, IIRC.

As I have no idea how to fix this in variant, I recently marked variant
as expected to fail on this compiler. Probably you should do the same
for the upcoming release.
