Not directly. Shared memory could be implemented as a 'memory system'.
If you do a malloc on a shared memory system, you would have to lock
it (internally). Same goes for all other operations on the memory
system. Basically it is the responsibility of the implementor of
a memory system to do the locking when it is required.

For accessing the reserved memory yes, for allocating/freeing no.
