The posting uses the word "support," which can mean lots of different things. To some, "support for priority inversion" would mean code that effects priority version. For others, it means code that recognizes and/or handles priority inversion.

I always encourage people to avoid the term "support" altogether, because there is always a plainer, more informative word you can use. In this case, I would say "handling of priority inversion" or "priority inheritance function."

Remember that support really means to hold up or assist, and priority inversion doesn't require any support; it does fine all by itself.
