In such error messages, the first thing to look at is where the actual
error happens, indicated by gcc with "instantiated for here". You'll find
it's a static assertion and along with it the comment:

    // The most common cause of trapping here would be serializing
    // something like shared_ptr<int>. This occurs because int
    // is never tracked by default. Wrap int in a trackable type

As you can then look up in the documentation, for ints the address is not
serialised, as their tracking traits default to track_never, which is
probably sensible. Simply wrap you int in your own class, then you are
fine. And this is as efficient.
