Consider the pthread mutex attributes when initializing a mutex.  While I can
check these on the linux man pages, I have no reason to believe (unless they
observe the same POSIX restrictions) that their implementation semantics are
identical.  How am I intended as a user to become educated on this type of
thing on FreeBSD?

That page only states what the behavior of the function for the attribute
pointer when it is null, but not for any other value.  Am I really supposed to
just go digging in the source code?
