Don't worry about it for now, it is not relevant to your current patch
set. Here is some clarification though:
The name does not tell me that it is used to lock the heap, but rather
implies it is a global lock used for all allocation with RTEMS. My
point is that the places where it is specifically the Heap being
protected should be made clear.
