Final Accepted Text
Summary 0001430: Text about interleaving data should say thread not process
Description Where the description of write() talks about data written to a pipe (or FIFO) being interleaved it refers to "other processes" but should say "other threads".

Also, the text on line 73481 before the bullet list says "pipe or FIFO" but the bullet list items only say "pipe".
Desired Action On page 2311 line 73485 section write(), change:
Write requests of {PIPE_BUF} bytes or less shall not be interleaved with data from other processes doing writes on the same pipe. Writes of greater than {PIPE_BUF} bytes may have data interleaved, on arbitrary boundaries, with writes by other processes, whether or not the O_NONBLOCK flag of the file status flags is set.
to:
Write requests of {PIPE_BUF} bytes or less shall not be interleaved with data from other threads performing write operations on the same pipe. Writes of greater than {PIPE_BUF} bytes may have data interleaved, on arbitrary boundaries, with write operations by other threads, whether or not the O_NONBLOCK flag of the file status flags is set.

On page 2311 lines 73483-73500 section write(), change all occurrences of "pipe" to "pipe or FIFO".

On page 2314 line 73634 section write(), change:
interleaved with data from any other process
to:
interleaved with data from any other thread
