as discussed in http://mail.openjdk.java.net/pipermail/hotspot-runtime-dev/2016-August/020888.html,
the signal handler on Solaris SPARC should throw a java.lang.InternalError when Unsafe accesses unaligned addresses.
This is currently broken because the signal handler only accepts BUS_OBJERR which is not sufficient.

Proposed fix:

Please review. I will also need a sponsor.
