Detailed Description

Non-recursive lock class.

The lock implements a critical region that only one thread can enter at a time. The lock is non-recursive, i.e., a thread that holds the lock can not lock it again. Any attempt to do so will abort the process.

Other pre- and post-conditions are checked via mi_base_assert.
