 Hi Manuel,

Could you please provide a patch (both for bdwgc master and libatomic_ops master) or, better, put the corresponding commit to cloned repository on github? Sorry for asking you to do it for such a small change but it will speed up patches processing at my side.

Anyway, thank you for reporting the problem.
