/**
* \file vcos_semaphore.h
*
* \section sem Semaphores
*
* This provides counting semaphores. Semaphores are not re-entrant. On sensible
* operating systems a semaphore can always be posted but can only be taken in
* thread (not interrupt) context. Under Nucleus, a LISR cannot post a semaphore,
* although it would not be hard to lift this restriction.
*
* \subsection timeout Timeout
*
* On both Nucleus and ThreadX a semaphore can be taken with a timeout. This is
* not supported by VCOS because it makes the non-timeout code considerably more
* complicated (and hence slower). In the unlikely event that you need a timeout
* with a semaphore, and you cannot simply redesign your code to avoid it, use
* an event flag (vcos_event_flags.h).
*
* \subsection sem_nucleus Changes from Nucleus:
*
* Semaphores are always "FIFO" - i.e. sleeping threads are woken in FIFO order. That's
* because:
* \arg there's no support for NU_PRIORITY in threadx (though it can be emulated, slowly)
* \arg we don't appear to actually consciously use it - for example, Dispmanx uses
* it, but all threads waiting are the same priority.

* \brief Wait on a semaphore.
*
* There is no timeout option on a semaphore, as adding this will slow down
* implementations on some platforms. If you need that kind of behaviour, use
* an event group.
*
* On most platforms this always returns VCOS_SUCCESS, and so would ideally be
* a void function, however some platforms allow a wait to be interrupted so
* it remains non-void.
