[cfe-dev] [libc++] r160604 appears to have broken libc++ on linux

I have a mostly working clang toolchain on Linux using libc++abi and
libc++. But today I pulled the latest updates to libc++ and rebuilt
it, and now any attempt to construct a std::stringstream fails.

#include <sstream>

int main(int argc, char* argv[]) {
    std::stringstream ss;
    return EXIT_SUCCESS;

This dies with an unhandled std::bad_cast exception:

terminating with uncaught exception of type std::bad_cast: std::bad_cast

Program received signal SIGABRT, Aborted.

In addition to my trivial test case, many of the libc++abi and libc++
unit tests fail with similar exceptions when r160604 is applied.

If I revert libc++ back to r160594 things start working again.

The rest of toolchain was built with the following component revisions:
llvm: r160611
clang: r160613
libc++abi: r160553

It is not immediately obvious to me how r160604's noexcept and
constexpr changes to std::mutex could cause this. Valgrind didn't have
anything interesting to say. Any suggestions about where to start
