ARGUMENTS         top

                   mutex initialization function

       mutex_deinit_func deinit
                   mutex deinitialization function

       mutex_lock_func lock

DESCRIPTION         top

       With this function you are allowed to override the default mutex
       locks used in some parts of gnutls and dependent libraries. This
       function should be used if you have complete control of your
       program and libraries.  Do not call this function from a library,
       or preferably from any application unless really needed to.
       GnuTLS will use the appropriate locks for the running system.

       This function must be called prior to any other GnuTLS function;
       otherwise the behavior is undefined.

DEPRECATED         top

       This function is discouraged on GnuTLS 3.7.3 or later.

SINCE         top
