NAME
       pthread_mutex_consistent - make a robust mutex consistent

SYNOPSIS
       #include <pthread.h>

       int pthread_mutex_consistent(pthread_mutex_t *mutex);

       Compile and link with -pthread.

   Feature Test Macro Requirements for glibc (see feature_test_macros(7)):

       pthread_mutex_consistent():
           _POSIX_C_SOURCE >= 200809L

DESCRIPTION
       This  function makes a robust mutex consistent if it is in an inconsis-
       tent state.  A mutex can be left in an inconsistent state if its  owner
       terminates  while  holding  the mutex, in which case the next owner who
       acquires the mutex will succeed and be notified by a  return  value  of
       EOWNERDEAD from a call to pthread_mutex_lock().

RETURN VALUE
       On   success,  pthread_mutex_consistent()  returns  0.   Otherwise,  it
       returns a positive error number to indicate the cause of the error.

ERRORS
       EINVAL The mutex is either not robust or  is  not  in  an  inconsistent
              state.

VERSIONS
       pthread_mutex_consistent() was added to glibc in version 2.12.

CONFORMING TO
       POSIX.1-2008.

NOTES
       pthread_mutex_consistent()  simply  informs the implementation that the
       state (shared data) guarded by the mutex has been restored to a consis-
       tent  state  and  that  normal operations can now be performed with the
       mutex.  It is the  application's  responsibility  to  ensure  that  the
       shared  data  has  been  restored  to a consistent state before calling
       pthread_mutex_consistent().

       Before the  addition  of  pthread_mutex_consistent()  to  POSIX,  glibc
       defined  the  following  equivalent nonstandard function if _GNU_SOURCE
       was defined:

       int pthread_mutex_consistent(const pthread_mutex_t *mutex);

       This GNU-specific API, which first appeared in glibc 2.4,  is  nowadays
       obsolete and should not be used in new programs.

       See pthread_mutexattr_setrobust(3).
