I quote you without clipping anything anywhere:
"it depends completely on the threads all acquiring the same mutex
before entering the critical section."

That is the same as saying
"all the threads must acquire the same mutex _before_ any may enter
the critical section" - implying that they must all do so at the same

For the record, I don't see how one can reasonably interpret Doug's
phrase the way you do. It just says that each thread must acquire a
mutex before that particular thread enters a critical section - not that
all of them must somehow coordinate to enter the section simultaneously.
Frankly, your interpretation is ridiculous.

By the way, English is not my native language either.

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine. However, this is not
necessarily a good idea. It is hard to be sure where they are going to
land, and it could be dangerous sitting under them as they fly
overhead. -- RFC 1925
