I will try to make it more clear
comes to my test case again:

process_a(server) process_b(client)
semget() <-seems you choose to set it here
--------------- <1> --------------------
semctl(SETVAL)
semop()
semget()
setctl(IP_STAT)
for(;;) {
check until sem_otime > 0
}
And assume that schedule() happenes at <1>, then sem_otime will >0
in process_b's for(;;), but at that time, the process_a's semctl()
hasn't been called yet.
