/*!
    \class QMutex
    \inmodule QtCore
    \brief The QMutex class provides access serialization between threads.

    \threadsafe

    \ingroup thread

    The purpose of a QMutex is to protect an object, data structure or
    section of code so that only one thread can access it at a time
    (this is similar to the Java \c synchronized keyword). It is
    usually best to use a mutex with a QMutexLocker since this makes
    it easy to ensure that locking and unlocking are performed
    consistently.

    For example, say there is a method that prints a message to the
    user on two lines:

    \snippet code/src_corelib_thread_qmutex.cpp 0

    If these two methods are called in succession, the following happens:

    \snippet code/src_corelib_thread_qmutex.cpp 1

    If these two methods are called simultaneously from two threads then the
    following sequence could result:

    \snippet code/src_corelib_thread_qmutex.cpp 2

    If we add a mutex, we should get the result we want:

    \snippet code/src_corelib_thread_qmutex.cpp 3

    Then only one thread can modify \c number at any given time and
    the result is correct. This is a trivial example, of course, but
    applies to any other case where things need to happen in a
    particular sequence.

    When you call lock() in a thread, other threads that try to call
    lock() in the same place will block until the thread that got the
    lock calls unlock(). A non-blocking alternative to lock() is
    tryLock().

    QMutex is optimized to be fast in the non-contended case. A non-recursive
    QMutex will not allocate memory if there is no contention on that mutex.
    It is constructed and destroyed with almost no overhead,
    which means it is fine to have many mutexes as part of other classes.

    \value Recursive  In this mode, a thread can lock the same mutex
                      multiple times and the mutex won't be unlocked
                      until a corresponding number of unlock() calls
                      have been made. You should use QRecursiveMutex
                      for this use-case.

    \brief The QRecursiveMutex class provides access serialization between threads.

    \threadsafe

    \ingroup thread

    The QRecursiveMutex class is a mutex, like QMutex, with which it is
    API-compatible. It differs from QMutex by accepting lock() calls from
    the same thread any number of times. QMutex would deadlock in this situation.

    QRecursiveMutex is much more expensive to construct and operate on, so
    use a plain QMutex whenever you can. Sometimes, one public function,
    however, calls another public function, and they both need to lock the
    same mutex. In this case, you have two options:

    \list
    \li Factor the code that needs mutex protection into private functions,
    which assume that the mutex is held when they are called, and lock a
    plain QMutex in the public functions before you call the private
    implementation ones.
    \li Or use a recursive mutex, so it doesn't matter that the first public
    function has already locked the mutex when the second one wishes to do so.

    \class QMutexLocker
    \inmodule QtCore
    \brief The QMutexLocker class is a convenience class that simplifies
    locking and unlocking mutexes.

    \threadsafe

    \ingroup thread

    Locking and unlocking a QMutex in complex functions and
    statements or in exception handling code is error-prone and
    difficult to debug. QMutexLocker can be used in such situations
    to ensure that the state of the mutex is always well-defined.

    QMutexLocker should be created within a function where a
    QMutex needs to be locked. The mutex is locked when QMutexLocker
    is created. You can unlock and relock the mutex with \c unlock()
    and \c relock(). If locked, the mutex will be unlocked when the
    QMutexLocker is destroyed.

    For example, this complex function locks a QMutex upon entering
    the function and unlocks the mutex at all the exit points:

    \snippet code/src_corelib_thread_qmutex.cpp 4

    This example function will get more complicated as it is
    developed, which increases the likelihood that errors will occur.

    Using QMutexLocker greatly simplifies the code, and makes it more
    readable:

    \snippet code/src_corelib_thread_qmutex.cpp 5

    Now, the mutex will always be unlocked when the QMutexLocker
    object is destroyed (when the function returns since \c locker is
    an auto variable).

    The same principle applies to code that throws and catches
    exceptions. An exception that is not caught in the function that
    has locked the mutex has no way of unlocking the mutex before the
    exception is passed up the stack to the calling function.

    QMutexLocker also provides a \c mutex() member function that returns
    the mutex on which the QMutexLocker is operating. This is useful
    for code that needs access to the mutex, such as
    QWaitCondition::wait(). For example:

    \snippet code/src_corelib_thread_qmutex.cpp 6

/*
  For a rough introduction on how this works, refer to
  http://woboq.com/blog/internals-of-qmutex-in-qt5.html
  which explains a slightly simplified version of it.
  The differences are that here we try to work with timeout (requires the
  possiblyUnlocked flag) and that we only wake one thread when unlocking
  (requires maintaining the waiters count)
  We also support recursive mutexes which always have a valid d_ptr.

  The waiters flag represents the number of threads that are waiting or about
  to wait on the mutex. There are two tricks to keep in mind:
  We don't want to increment waiters after we checked no threads are waiting
  (waiters == 0). That's why we atomically set the BigNumber flag on waiters when
  we check waiters. Similarly, if waiters is decremented right after we checked,
  the mutex would be unlocked (d->wakeUp() has (or will) be called), but there is
  no thread waiting. This is only happening if there was a timeout in tryLock at the
  same time as the mutex is unlocked. So when there was a timeout, we set the
  possiblyUnlocked flag.
