RFR(M): 7147848: [macosx] com.sun.management.UnixOperatingSystem uses hardcoded dummy values

There isn't any undocumented semantics other than what the specification
for com.sun.management.OperatingSystemMXBean specifies (that is
indicated by its method name):
As Roger suggests, you can do some sanity tests and compare the result
with native commands (top or other CLI). There are a few regression
tests in jdk/test/com/sun/management. In particular, you might want to
update test/com/sun/management/TestTotalSwap.sh to check the swap space
with a suitable macosx command, if there is one.
FYI. I'm not familiar with Mac OS X API and didn't review the code.

As a sanity test, the function values being returned could be printed by a java program and visually compared with the output of 'top' as a system is loaded up. It might also be wise to run the same java program on other platforms to make sure that the magnitude of the numbers is in the same ballpark.
