Please review the following change.
This is a followup of bug 7132199 which is fixed in jdk8 and jdk7u-dev.
If the user sets -Djava.io.tmpdir to something else than /tmp, the attach framework will fail (for example jstack). The reason is that Hotspot and the jdk does not agree on which directory the well-known .java_pid and .attach_pid files should be in. On OSX Hotspot will always create these in the per-user secure temporary directory, but the jdk will look in java.io.tmpdir.
This fix makes sure the jdk looks in the same location as Hotspot.
