I'm wondering: Why does the _M_reverse_check overload set require
_GLIBCXX14_CONSTEXPR and not _GLIBCXX11_CONSTEXPR? None of them is
written in a way that it could not be a valid C++11 constexpr

I believe that operator()(_Iterator1 __it1, _Iterator2 __it2) could
easily be adapted to be also a valid C++11 constexpr function by
replacing the if-directive by an conditional expression and please
note that your __cplusplus tests are always C++11 compatible.

On the other hand in line 311 of the patch you define a
_GLIBCXX14_CONSTEXPR operator(), but that one seems to invoke
_M_reverse_check functions where none of them is constexpr, so this
operator() could never be constexpr. Note also that
_Iter_less_val_comp on line 306 doesn't have a constexpr constructor,
so there is no way to invoke the constexpr operator() member.

It seems as if a similar problem exists for line 377 and the following
_M_reverse_check overloads.

Comparing to these two, why is in line 136 and line 187 the operator()
template and it's _M_reverse_check not constexpr as well?
