Hi Alan,

> JDK-8314152 seems to very AIX specific with shared lib caching that I would hope complicate interfaces for other ports.

yes this is of course AIX specific.  However I found something that might be similar on Windows, there we have in case of successful LoadLibrary in  os::dll_load   calls to  SymbolEngine::recalc_search_path();
However I did not check the details on this; but for AIX we have a real problem with outdated/incomplete stacks in hs_err files.
