Anyone know if:
# POSIX semaphores and cross-process pthread mutexes are not
# used by default since they have less desirable behaviour when
# e.g. a process holding the mutex segfaults.
is still applicable, at least for posix sems?
AFAIK, the Solaris-specific recovery logic for cross-process pthread mutexes has been working reliably for a long time, but with the current wind direction APR is choosing fcntl(), which has sysdef implementations on that
ugh; "sysdef implications"
no clues here about the POSIX semaphores
