NAME
       pthread_mutex_consistent - make a robust mutex consistent

SYNOPSIS
       #include <pthread.h>

       int pthread_mutex_consistent(pthread_mutex_t *mutex);

       Compile and link with -pthread.

   Feature Test Macro Requirements for glibc (see feature_test_macros(7)):

       pthread_mutex_consistent():
           _POSIX_C_SOURCE >= 200809L

DESCRIPTION
       This function makes a robust mutex consistent if it is in an inconsistent
       state.  A mutex can be left in an inconsistent state if its owner
       terminates while holding the mutex, in which case the next owner who
       acquires the mutex will succeed and be notified by a return value of
       EOWNERDEAD from a call to pthread_mutex_lock().

RETURN VALUE
       On success, pthread_mutex_consistent() returns 0.  Otherwise, it returns
       a positive error number to indicate the cause of the error.

ERRORS
       EINVAL The mutex is either not robust or is not in an inconsistent state.

VERSIONS
       pthread_mutex_consistent() was added to glibc in version 2.12.

CONFORMING TO
       POSIX.1-2008.

NOTES
       pthread_mutex_consistent() simply informs the implementation that the
       state (shared data) guarded by the mutex has been restored to a
       consistent state and that normal operations can now be performed with the
       mutex.  It is the application's responsibility to ensure that the shared
       data has been restored to a consistent state before calling
       pthread_mutex_consistent().

       Before the addition of pthread_mutex_consistent() to POSIX, glibc defined
       the following equivalent nonstandard function if _GNU_SOURCE was defined:

       int pthread_mutex_consistent(const pthread_mutex_t *mutex);

       This GNU-specific API, which first appeared in glibc 2.4, is nowadays
       obsolete and should not be used in new programs.
