Detailed Description

Phase-fair locks

This file defines an API for phase-fair reader writer locks, which is a variant of typical reader-writer locks that prevent starvation. In this type of lock, readers and writers alternate. This significantly reduces the worst-case blocking for readers and writers.

This is an implementation derived from FreeBSD based on the work described in: Brandenburg, B. and Anderson, J. 2010. Spin-Based Reader-Writer Synchronization for Multiprocessor Real-Time Systems

All locks must be initialised before use, and only initialised once.
