My reading of the patch is that the "os" key is to avoid generating it 
on non-AIX platforms, it will otherwise end up in jdk.charsets on 
non-AIX platforms. The general direction is welcome but I think further 
work and discussion will be needed to get the right set of changes to 
support filtering in the build. It can probably be separated from the 
changes to add IBM-29626C to AIX's java.base.
