DESCRIPTION

                              lock resides can manipulate the lock.

     PTHREAD_PROCESS_PRIVATE  Only threads created within the same process as the thread that initialized
                              the read/write lock can manipulate the lock.  This is the default value.

RETURN VALUES
     If successful, the pthread_rwlockattr_getpshared() function will return zero.  Otherwise, an error num-ber number
     ber will be returned to indicate the error.
