sem_destroy - destroy an unnamed semaphore (REALTIME)
The sem_destroy() function shall destroy the unnamed semaphore indicated by sem. Only a semaphore that was created using sem_init() may be destroyed using sem_destroy(); the effect of calling sem_destroy() with a named semaphore is undefined. The effect of subsequent use of the semaphore sem is undefined until sem is reinitialized by another call to sem_init().
The sem_destroy() function shall fail if:
The sem argument is not a valid semaphore.
The sem_destroy() function may fail if:
There are currently processes blocked on the semaphore.
