    Every *nix except QNX now uses XP semaphores... a POSIX semaphore lib · 651e2109
    deuce authored
    The semaphore emulation lib provides for sem_timedwait() which will allow
    correct blocking calls to be used rather than bogus (On *nix anyways)
    arbitrary 1-55ms (depending on hardware) wait during a loop to avoid 100%
    CPU utilization.
    The xpsem lib uses mutexes to provide semaphore functions and is taken
    almost line-per-line from FreeBSD.  (copyright left intact)
