#9527: Typo on Boost::Atomic docs
 Reporter: davidaneiss@… | Owner: timblechmann

Milestone: To Be Determined | Component: atomic
  Version: Boost 1.54.0 | Severity: Cosmetic

 In paragraph 'One can however also arrive at the same conclusion using
 happens-before: Either thread1 or thread2 will succeed first at m.lock().
 If this is be thread1, then as a consequence, thread2 cannot succeed at
 m.lock() before thread1 has executed m.unlock(), consequently A happens-
 before B in this case. By symmetry, if thread2 succeeds at m.unlock()
 first, we can conclude B happens-before A."

 In the last sentence, that should probably be "... if thread2 succeeds at
 m.lock() first, ...". That is, change "unlock" to "lock".
