pthread_mutexattr_settype (pthread_mutexattr_t * attr, int kind)
/*
* ------------------------------------------------------
*
* DOCPUBLIC
* The pthread_mutexattr_settype() and
* pthread_mutexattr_gettype() functions respectively set and
* get the mutex type attribute. This attribute is set in the
* type parameter to these functions.
*
* PARAMETERS
* attr
* pointer to an instance of pthread_mutexattr_t
*
* type
* must be one of:
*
* PTHREAD_MUTEX_DEFAULT
*
* PTHREAD_MUTEX_NORMAL
*
* PTHREAD_MUTEX_ERRORCHECK
*
* PTHREAD_MUTEX_RECURSIVE
*
* DESCRIPTION
* The pthread_mutexattr_settype() and
* pthread_mutexattr_gettype() functions respectively set and
* get the mutex type attribute. This attribute is set in the
* type parameter to these functions. The default value of the
* type attribute is PTHREAD_MUTEX_DEFAULT.
*
* The type of mutex is contained in the type attribute of the
* mutex attributes. Valid mutex types include:
*
* PTHREAD_MUTEX_NORMAL
* This type of mutex does not detect deadlock. A
* thread attempting to relock this mutex without
* first unlocking it will deadlock. Attempting to
* unlock a mutex locked by a different thread
* results in undefined behavior. Attempting to
* unlock an unlocked mutex results in undefined
* behavior.
*
* PTHREAD_MUTEX_ERRORCHECK
* This type of mutex provides error checking. A
* thread attempting to relock this mutex without
* first unlocking it will return with an error. A
* thread attempting to unlock a mutex which another
* thread has locked will return with an error. A
* thread attempting to unlock an unlocked mutex will
* return with an error.
*
* PTHREAD_MUTEX_DEFAULT
* Same as PTHREAD_MUTEX_NORMAL.
*
* PTHREAD_MUTEX_RECURSIVE
* A thread attempting to relock this mutex without
* first unlocking it will succeed in locking the
* mutex. The relocking deadlock which can occur with
* mutexes of type PTHREAD_MUTEX_NORMAL cannot occur
* with this type of mutex. Multiple locks of this
* mutex require the same number of unlocks to
* release the mutex before another thread can
* acquire the mutex. A thread attempting to unlock a
* mutex which another thread has locked will return
* with an error. A thread attempting to unlock an
* unlocked mutex will return with an error. This
* type of mutex is only supported for mutexes whose
* process shared attribute is
* PTHREAD_PROCESS_PRIVATE.
*
* RESULTS
* 0 successfully set attribute,
* EINVAL 'attr' or 'type' is invalid,
*
* ------------------------------------------------------
