NAME         top

       pthread_mutex_consistent - make a robust mutex consistent

SYNOPSIS         top

       #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         top

       This function makes a robust mutex consistent if it is in an
       inconsistent 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         top

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

ERRORS         top

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

VERSIONS         top

       pthread_mutex_consistent() was added to glibc in version 2.12.

CONFORMING TO         top

       POSIX.1-2008.

NOTES         top

       pthread_mutex_consistent() simply informs the implementation that the
       state (shared data) guarded by the mutex has been restored to a
       consistent 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.
