32 *      This file defines a POSIX compliant unnamed semaphore.
33 *
34 * A semaphore is declared by a given user process as a "sem_t" global variable.
35 * The user "sem_t" structure is implemented as an unsigned long, but the value is not
36 * used by the kernel. ALMOS-MKH uses only the sem_t virtual address as an identifier.
37 * For each user semaphore, ALMOS-MKH creates a kernel "remote_sem_t" structure.
38 * - This structure is allocated in the reference cluster by the sem_init() syscall,
39 *   and destroyed by the sem_destroy() syscall, using RPC if the calling thread is not
40 *   running in the reference cluster.
41 * - The threads accessing the semaphore with the sem_get_value(), sem_wait(), sem_post()
42 *   syscalls can be running in any cluster, as these syscalls access the "remote_sem_t"
43 *   structure with remote_read / remote_write access functions.

47/*********************************************************************************************
48 * This structure defines the kernel semaphore descriptor.
49 * - It contains the root of a waiting threads queue, implemented as a distributed xlist.
50 * - It contains an xlist of all semaphores, rooted in the reference process descriptor.
51 * - It contains a lock protecting both the semaphore value and the waiting queue.
