-BOOST_WITHOUT_FLAGS = python context
+BOOST_WITHOUT_FLAGS = python atomic

 Maybe there was a reason why "context" was unconditionally excluded
from the build, before your patch. Did you check why?

 context was excluded because compilation is impossible with boost
1.52.0 and uClibc, there is a problem with uintptr_t and intptr_t.
But this is fixed in latest version, 1.53.0.

Also, it would be good to have a comment here that explains why python
and atomic are unconditionally excluded for the build.

 atomic is a new boost library since boost 1.53.0. It is excluded because
it can not compile with uClibc (uintptr_t missing too), but this is now
fixed in
trunk version, see ticket https://svn.boost.org/trac/boost/ticket/7979

In this patch, atomic is simply excluded. So either we wait for boost 1.54.0
releasing orI can add the patch to fix atomic compilation in buildroot and
add boost-atomic in menuconfig?

I do not nothing about pyhton exclusion, sorry.
