Re: Default std::vector<bool> default and move constructor

Unless I made a mistake it revealed that restoring explicit call to _Bit_alloc_type() in default constructor was not enough. G++ doesn't transform it into a value-init if needed. I don't know if it is a compiler bug but I had to do just like presented in the Standard to achieve the expected behavior.

That really shouldn't be necessary (see blow).

This value-init is specific to post-C++11 right ? Maybe I could remove the useless explicit call to _Bit_alloc_type() in pre-C++11 mode ?

No, because C++03 also requires the allocator to be value-initialized.

Now I wonder if I really introduced a regression in rb_tree...

Yes, I think you did. Could you try to verify that using the new
default_init_allocator?

This second condition is not needed, because that constructor should
be noexcept (see below).

This should not be necessary...

	  _Bvector_impl()

I would expect the constructor to look like this:

	  _Bvector_impl()
	  _GLIBCXX_NOEXCEPT_IF( noexcept(_Bit_alloc_type()) )
         : _Bit_alloc_type()
         { }

What happens when you do that?


	  _Bvector_impl(const _Bit_alloc_type& __a)
-	: _Bit_alloc_type(__a), _M_start(), _M_finish(), _M_end_of_storage()
+	     _GLIBCXX_NOEXCEPT_IF( noexcept(_Bit_alloc_type(__a)) )

Copying the allocator is not allowed to throw. You can use simply
_GLIBCXX_NOEXCEPT here.


+void test01()
+{
+  typedef default_init_allocator<T> alloc_type;
+  typedef std::vector<T, alloc_type> test_type;
+
+  test_type v1;
+  v1.push_back(T());
+
+  VERIFY( !v1.empty() );
+  VERIFY( !v1.get_allocator().state );

This is unlikely to ever fail, because the stack is probably full of
zeros anyway. Did you confirm whether the test fails without your
fixes to value-initialize the allocator?

One possible way to make it fail would be to construct the
vector<bool> using placement new, into a buffer filled with non-zero
values. (Valgrind or a sanitizer should also tell us, but we can't
rely on them in the testsuite).
