Edge Mutex API.
Definition of the Edge mutex API.
This module exists to help testing mutexes. In tests we also use pthread mutexes. Therefore we cannot mock them. Instead we have a library which calls pthread mutexes and can be mocked. Because this module is based on pthread mutexes, more information is available entering for example: "man pthread_mutex_init" in Linux with pthread man page installed. In Ubuntu this manual page is installed using "apt install glibc-doc".
