--  This package contains all the extended primitives related to
--  Protected_Objects with entries.
--  The handling of protected objects with no entries is done in
--  System.Tasking.Protected_Objects, the simple routines for protected
--  objects with entries in System.Tasking.Protected_Objects.Entries.
--  The split between Entries and Operations is needed to break circular
--  dependencies inside the run time.

--  Note: the compiler generates direct calls to this interface, via Rtsfind.
--  Any changes to this interface may require corresponding compiler changes.
