The pthread_rwlockattr_destroy() function shall destroy a read-write lock
attributes object. A destroyed attr attributes object can be
reinitialized using pthread_rwlockattr_init(); the results of otherwise
referencing the object after it has been destroyed are undefined. An
implementation may cause pthread_rwlockattr_destroy() to set the object
referenced by attr to an invalid value.
The pthread_rwlockattr_init() function shall initialize a read-write lock
attributes object attr with the default value for all of the attributes
defined by the implementation.
Results are undefined if pthread_rwlockattr_init() is called specifying
an already initialized attr attributes object.
After a read-write lock attributes object has been used to initialize one or
more read-write locks, any function affecting the attributes object (including
destruction) shall not affect any previously initialized read-write locks.
