Package: libc6-dev
Version: 2.3.6.ds1-9
Severity: wishlist


 There is an issue with the /usr/include/semaphore.h file and what
 the manpages are saying for sem_open(3) and POSIX specifications
 for the semaphore.h file.

 In a nutshell, with the libc6-dev package, one can't do
 the (basic) following :

 #include <semaphore.h>

 Without having included pthread.h before. That breaks a few
 .c files that would have compiled without any error on other POSIX
 systems with the following message :

 In file included from test.c:10:
 /usr/include/semaphore.h:34: error: field '__sem_lock' has incomplete 

 (where line 10 of test.c is "#include <semaphore.h>").

 Maybe should we inlcude pthread.h in /usr/include/semaphore.h ?

 Another solution would be to fix the manpages (ie: sem_open(3))
 who are just requiring semaphore.h by adding an #include <pthread.>

 For the record, users who find this bug while trying
 to compile POSIX-semaphore enabled source code can fix
 it by adding "#include <pthread.h>" before "#include <semaphore.h>"
