NAME
     CK_RWCOHORT_PROTOTYPE -- define reader-writer cohort-based lock using the
     specified cohort type

LIBRARY
     Concurrency Kit (libck, -lck)

SYNOPSIS
     #include <ck_rwcohort.h>

     CK_RWCOHORT_NEUTRAL_PROTOTYPE(COHORT_NAME cohort_name);

     CK_RWCOHORT_RP_PROTOTYPE(COHORT_NAME cohort_name);

     CK_RWCOHORT_WP_PROTOTYPE(COHORT_NAME cohort_name);

DESCRIPTION
     The ck_rwcohort.h header file does not define any cohort types.  Instead,
     the user must use the CK_RWCOHORT_PROTOTYPE macro to define any types
     they want to use.  This macro takes a single argument which corresponds
     to the type of the cohort lock that the reader-writer lock should use.  A
     cohort type must have already been defined with that name using the
     CK_COHORT_PROTOTYPE(3) or CK_COHORT_TRYLOCK_PROTOTYPE(3) macros.

     Instances of the defined lock type can be declared as:
         CK_RWCOHORT_INSTANCE(cohort_name) lock;
