Posix semaphore between different processes

Currently, our Posix semaphore doesn't support different processes. Can
we implement our Posix semaphore with SYSV semaphore for inter-process
POSIX semaphore? We can have Posix semaphore derived from SYSV
semaphore in libc and the one in pthread will override them. If it
is ok, I can submit a patch for that. Thanks.
