/*
 * ------------------------------------------------------
 * DOCPUBLIC
 *      Mutexes created with 'attr' can be shared between
 *      processes if pthread_mutex_t variable is allocated
 *      in memory shared by these processes.
 *
 * PARAMETERS
 *      attr
 *              pointer to an instance of pthread_mutexattr_t
 *
 *      pshared
 *              must be one of:
 *
 *                      PTHREAD_PROCESS_SHARED
 *                              May be shared if in shared memory
 *
 *                      PTHREAD_PROCESS_PRIVATE
 *                              Cannot be shared.
 *
 * DESCRIPTION
 *      Mutexes creatd with 'attr' can be shared between
 *      processes if pthread_mutex_t variable is allocated
 *      in memory shared by these processes.
 *
 *      NOTES:
 *              1)      pshared mutexes MUST be allocated in shared
 *                      memory.
 *
 *              2)      The following macro is defined if shared mutexes
 *                      are supported:
 *                              _POSIX_THREAD_PROCESS_SHARED
 *
 * RESULTS
 *              0               successfully set attribute,
 *              EINVAL          'attr' or pshared is invalid,
 *              ENOSYS          PTHREAD_PROCESS_SHARED not supported,
 *
