Doc should mention that the "absolute time" used by timed_lock is UTC

In interprocess scoped_lock allows an "absolute time" to be specified. The doc should mention that this "absolute time" is UTC and not local time, since it is much more natural to assume a local time value.

Thanks for the report. Added a note when explaning several mutex and lock types saying UTC time is expected by functions taking absolute time points. Fixed at revision 76987.
