I don't think that this code was ever part of the GNU C++ library, in the 
sense of libstdc++.  The way I've interpreted it is that it's part of the 
GNU-licensed c++ library stuff in irrtoolset, and my suspicion (which may 
be completely wrong) is that the header file was just cut-n-pasted from 
file to file without a whole lot of thought about licensing.

The licensing for irrtoolset is a complete mess.
