WW_MUTEX_UNLOCK(9) Mutex API reference WW_MUTEX_UNLOCK(9)NAME
ww_mutex_unlock - release the w/w mutex

the mutex to be released
Unlock a mutex that has been locked by this task previously with any of the ww_mutex_lock* functions (with or without an acquire context).
It is forbidden to release the locks after releasing the acquire context.
This function must not be used in interrupt context. Unlocking of a unlocked mutex is not allowed.

pthread_mutex_unlock() - unlock a mutex.
mutex Pointer to the mutex to be unlocked.
The function is called by the owner of the mutex referenced by mutex to unlock the mutex. The manner in that the mutex is released is
dependent upon the mutex's type attribute. For normal and default mutexes, undefined behavior will result if is called on an unlocked
mutex or by a thread that is not the current owner. For recursive and error-checking mutexes, an error is returned if is called on an
unlocked mutex or by a thread which is not the current owner.
For recursive mutexes, the owner must call as many times as the mutex was locked before another thread can lock the mutex.
If there are threads blocked on the mutex referenced by mutex when releases the mutex, the scheduling policy is used to determine which
thread will acquire the mutex next.
Upon successful completion, returns zero. Otherwise, an error number is returned to indicate the error (the variable is not set).
For each of the following conditions, if the condition is detected, the function returns the corresponding error number:
[EINVAL] mutex is not an initialized mutex.
[EPERM] The calling thread does not own mutex. On HP-UX, this error is not detected for or mutexes.
[EFAULT] mutex parameter points to an illegal address.
was derived from the IEEE POSIX P1003.1c standard and HP extensions.
