The class shared_­mutex provides a non-recursive mutex with shared ownership semantics.
The class shared_­mutex meets all of the shared mutex requirements ([thread.sharedmutex.requirements]).
It is a standard-layout class ([class.prop]).
The behavior of a program is undefined if:
  • it destroys a shared_­mutex object owned by any thread,
  • a thread attempts to recursively gain any ownership of a shared_­mutex, or
  • a thread terminates while possessing any ownership of a shared_­mutex.
shared_­mutex may be a synonym for shared_­timed_­mutex.
