Use this function to create and return handle value that can be associated with a string. Consecutive calls to __itt_string_handle_create with the same name return the same value. Because the set of string handles is expected to remain static during the application’s execution time, there is no mechanism to destroy a string handle. Any string handle can be accessed by any thread in the process, regardless of which thread created the string handle. This call is thread-safe.
