pthread_mutexattr_getpshared, pthread_mutexattr_setpshared - get/set
process-shared mutex attribute

Compile and link with -pthread.
These functions get and set the process-shared attribute in a mutex
attributes object. This attribute must be appropriately set to ensure
correct, efficient operation of a mutex created using this attributes
The process-shared attribute can have one of the following values:
Mutexes created with this attributes object are to be shared
only among threads in the same process that initialized the
mutex. This is the default value for the process-shared mutex
Mutexes created with this attributes object can be shared
between any threads that have access to the memory containing
the object, including threads in different processes.
pthread_mutexattr_getpshared() places the value of the process-shared
attribute of the mutex attributes object referred to by attr in the
location pointed to by pshared.
pthread_mutexattr_setpshared() sets the value of the process-shared
attribute of the mutex attributes object referred to by attr to the
value specified in pshared.
If attr does not refer to an initialized mutex attributes object, the
behavior is undefined.
On success, these functions return 0. On error, they return a positive
pthread_mutexattr_setpshared() can fail with the following errors:
EINVAL The value specified in pshared is invalid.
pshared is PTHREAD_PROCESS_SHARED but the implementation does
not support process-shared mutexes.
