the test 'java/util/logging/LoggerWeakRefLeak.sh' checks for the
availability of the '-histo:live' option in jmap which is only
available if  the SA is available.

However I don't think that it should be an error if the option isn't
supported because of a missing SA implementation on a certain

I suggest the following fix:

     if [ "$status" != 0 ]; then
-        echo "ERROR: 'jmap $jmap_option' is not supported so this test"

I want to put this fix into the patch for "8028537: PPC64: Updated
jdk/test scripts to understand the AIX os and environment" so I don't
think we need a special BugID for it.

What do you think?
