pthread_mutex_consistent(3p) — Linux manual page



PROLOG         top

       This manual page is part of the POSIX Programmer's Manual.  The
       Linux implementation of this interface may differ (consult the
       corresponding Linux manual page for details of Linux behavior),
       or the interface may not be implemented on Linux.

NAME         top

       pthread_mutex_consistent — mark state protected by robust mutex
       as consistent

SYNOPSIS         top

       #include <pthread.h>

       int pthread_mutex_consistent(pthread_mutex_t *mutex);

DESCRIPTION         top

       If mutex is a robust mutex in an inconsistent state, the
       pthread_mutex_consistent() function can be used to mark the state
       protected by the mutex referenced by mutex as consistent again.

       If an owner of a robust mutex terminates while holding the mutex,
       the mutex becomes inconsistent and the next thread that acquires
       the mutex lock shall be notified of the state by the return value
       [EOWNERDEAD].  In this case, the mutex does not become normally
       usable again until the state is marked consistent.

       If the thread which acquired the mutex lock with the return value
       [EOWNERDEAD] terminates before calling either
       pthread_mutex_consistent() or pthread_mutex_unlock(), the next
       thread that acquires the mutex lock shall be notified about the
       state of the mutex by the return value [EOWNERDEAD].

       The behavior is undefined if the value specified by the mutex
       argument to pthread_mutex_consistent() does not refer to an
       initialized mutex.

RETURN VALUE         top

       Upon successful completion, the pthread_mutex_consistent()
       function shall return zero. Otherwise, an error value shall be
       returned to indicate the error.

ERRORS         top

       The pthread_mutex_consistent() function shall fail if:

       EINVAL The mutex object referenced by mutex is not robust or does
              not protect an inconsistent state.

       These functions shall not return an error code of [EINTR].

       The following sections are informative.

EXAMPLES         top



       The pthread_mutex_consistent() function is only responsible for
       notifying the implementation that the state protected by the
       mutex has been recovered and that normal operations with the
       mutex can be resumed. It is the responsibility of the application
       to recover the state so it can be reused. If the application is
       not able to perform the recovery, it can notify the
       implementation that the situation is unrecoverable by a call to
       pthread_mutex_unlock() without a prior call to
       pthread_mutex_consistent(), in which case subsequent threads that
       attempt to lock the mutex will fail to acquire the lock and be
       returned [ENOTRECOVERABLE].

RATIONALE         top

       If an implementation detects that the value specified by the
       mutex argument to pthread_mutex_consistent() does not refer to an
       initialized mutex, it is recommended that the function should
       fail and report an [EINVAL] error.
