Hello all,

Last year I submitted a bug regarding the use of 'parallel_for_each' and
Windows Concurrency Library. We have found that when compiling in Visual
Studio 2015 and 2017 with /MTd, the use of 'concurrency::parallel_for_each'
can cause unhandled exceptions when the program is exiting.


After having some difficulty clarifying this issue with Microsoft I
submitted the issue again this week and have found that they are aware of
the problem. However, I've yet to be given any information on a timescale
for a fix.


For our team this bug has caused problems when testing LLD. We suggest the
removal of this MSVC specific functionality in "llvm::parallel" until a fix
is made or alternative found. This could be easily swapped to use the
existing standard library implementation in the meantime.
