POSIX Threads Library (libpthread, -lpthread)
const struct timespec *abs_timeout);
The pthread_mutex_timedlock() function will lock mutex. If it is already
locked the calling thread will block until the mutex becomes available or
the timeout, specified by abs_timeout, expires. The time of the timeout
is an absolute time and is not relative to the current time.
If successful, pthread_mutex_timedlock() will return zero, otherwise an
error number will be returned to indicate the error.
The pthread_mutex_timedlock() function will fail if:
[EINVAL] The mutex was created with the protocol attribute hav‐
ing the value PTHREAD_PRIO_PROTECT and the calling
thread's priority is higher than the mutex's current
[EINVAL] The process or thread would have blocked, and
abs_timeout specified a nanosecond value less than
zero or greater than or equal to 1 billion.
[EINVAL] The mutex parameter is invalid.
[ETIMEDOUT] The mutex could not be locked before the timeout
[EAGAIN] The mutex could not be acquired because the maximum
number of recursive locks for the mutex has been
[EDEADLK] The current thread already owns the mutex.
