I've been poking at http://bugs.sun.com/bugdatabase/view_bug.do?bug_id=7181710 in my spare time (I've not a lot of these days). That issue is, IMHO, an even more glaring issue for what should be obvious reasons. The best solution seems to be to create a new set of headers for export in jdk/src/macosx/javavm/export since the implementation is very system dependent. I could roll this change as part of that as well as clean up some of the #if flow control that would no longer have any effect. I have that mostly done, but I need more time for testing the header and doing JPRT runs to be sure I haven't broken other platforms in the process.
That leaves the solaris headers and a separate issue would have to be filed to fix hotspot.
