pthread_cleanup_push_defer_np

       and pop thread cancellation clean-up handlers while saving  cancelabil-
       ity type

SYNOPSIS
       #include <pthread.h>

       void pthread_cleanup_push_defer_np(void (*routine)(void *),
                                          void *arg);
       void pthread_cleanup_pop_restore_np(int execute);

       Compile and link with -pthread.

DESCRIPTION
       These   functions   are   the   same   as  pthread_cleanup_push(3)  and
       pthread_cleanup_pop(3), except for the differences noted on this page.

       Like  pthread_cleanup_push(3),  pthread_cleanup_push_defer_np()  pushes
       routine  onto the thread's stack of cancellation clean-up handlers.  In
       addition, it also saves the thread's current  cancelability  type,  and
       sets  the  cancelability  type  to  "deferred"  (see pthread_setcancel-
       type(3)); this ensures that cancellation clean-up will  occur  even  if
       the thread's cancelability type was "asynchronous" before the the call.

       Like  pthread_cleanup_pop(3), pthread_cleanup_pop_restore_np() pops the
       top-most clean-up handler  from  the  thread's  stack  of  cancellation
       clean-up handlers.  In addition, it restores the thread's cancelability
       type   to    its    value    at    the    time    of    the    matching
       pthread_cleanup_push_defer_np().

       The  caller must ensure that calls to these functions are paired within
       the same function, and  at  the  same  lexical  nesting  level.   Other
       restrictions apply, as described in pthread_cleanup_push(3).

       This sequence of calls:

           pthread_cleanup_push_defer_np(routine, arg);
           pthread_cleanup_pop_restore_np(execute);

       is equivalent to (but shorter and more efficient than):

           int oldtype;

           pthread_cleanup_push(routine, arg);
           pthread_setcanceltype(PTHREAD_CANCEL_DEFERRED, &oldtype);
           ...
           pthread_setcanceltype(oldtype, NULL);
           pthread_cleanup_pop(execute);

CONFORMING TO
       These  functions are nonstandard GNU extensions; hence the suffix "_np"
       (nonportable) in the names.
