Subject: [boost] boost interprocess (>1.45) robust mutexes

I have noticed that in version 1.45 Ion Gaztanaga has added
detail/robust_emulation.hpp which contains code that seems to emulate
pthread_mutexattr_setrobust_np(). I understand this may be needed for
platforms that don't support robust mutexes. My version of linux does seem
to support robust mutexes, however I could not find a way to compile or in
any other way to use this flag on posix mutexes in boost 1.46.1.

Article here (
indicates the way to do this. But now emulation for robust mutexes has been
added I wonder if I am missing something.
