Move to Ready.
Change Mutex requirements 30.4.3 [thread.mutex.requirements], paragraph 4, as indicated:
not_enough_memory— if there is not enough memory to construct the mutex object.
resource_unavailable_try_again— if any native handle type manipulated is not available.
operation_not_permitted— if the thread does not have the necessary permission to change the state of the mutex object.
device_or_resource_busy— if any native handle type manipulated is already locked.
invalid_argument— if any native handle type manipulated as part of mutex construction is incorrect.
Change Class condition_variable 30.5.3 [thread.condition.condvar], default constructor, as indicated:
Effects: Constructs an object of type
not_enough_memory— if a memory limitation prevents initialization.
resource_unavailable_try_again— if some non-memory resource limitation prevents initialization.
device_or_resource_busy— if attempting to initialize a previously-initialized but as of yet undestroyed
