limitand the number of users which have currently acquired this semaphore. (type:
Remove a deferred d from our waiting list, as the deferred has been canceled.
Note: We do not need to wrap this in a try/except to catch d not being in self.waiting because this canceller will not be called if d has fired. release() pops a deferred out of self.waiting and calls it, so the canceller will no longer be called.
|Parameters||d||The deferred that has been canceled.|
Attempt to acquire the token.
