Thank you for explaining situation, it was confusing.
Since you are going to backport it into 7u40 the fix should be simple
and targeted. For me the suggestion to use new
PLATFORM_NATIVE_STACK_WALKING_SUPPORTED to fix this 8017473.
As you said NMT is nothing to do with this. So using
PLATFORM_NATIVE_STACK_WALKING_SUPPORTED instead of
PLATFORM_NMT_DETAIL_SUPPORTED is also questionable.
Why you use "PLATFORM_" prefix in names?
