/* A simple, asynchronous, lock-free (if requested also wait-free)
 * queue. Not multiple-reader/multiple-writer safe. If that is
 * required both sides can be protected by a mutex each. --- Which is
 * not a bad thing in most cases, since this queue is intended for
 * communication between a normal thread and a single real-time
 * thread. Only the real-time side needs to be lock-free/wait-free.
 *
 * If the queue is full and another entry shall be pushed, or when the
 * queue is empty and another entry shall be popped and the "wait"
 * argument is non-zero, the queue will block on a UNIX FIFO object --
 * that will probably require locking on the kernel side -- which
 * however is probably not problematic, because we do it only on
 * starvation or overload in which case we have to block anyway.  */
