* StaticMutex is a Mutex that can (and in fact, must) be used as a
* global/static variable.
* The main reason to use StaticMutex as opposed to
* StaticAutoPtr<OffTheBooksMutex> is that we instantiate the StaticMutex in a
* thread-safe manner the first time it's used.
* The same caveats that apply to StaticAutoPtr apply to StaticMutex. In
* particular, do not use StaticMutex as a stack variable or a class instance
* variable, because this class relies on the fact that global variablies are
* initialized to 0 in order to initialize mMutex. It is only safe to use
* StaticMutex as a global or static variable.
// In debug builds, check that mMutex is initialized for us as we expect by
// the compiler. In non-debug builds, don't declare a constructor so that
// the compiler can see that the constructor is trivial.
