Also, shm_open returns an integer file descriptor.
And when this file descriptor is passed too fcntl.flock (in macOS) it throws the following error:
OSError: [Errno 45] Operation not supported

Whereas, the same code works fine on linux.

Therefore, I have doubts whether Macos flock implementation support locking shared_memory files.
