Definitely an unusual way to launch the VM. The update to net_util_md.c 
looks okay.

For the test then can UnixSocketFile be moved into its own source file 
to make it clearer? Also I think we should move the static fields and 
CHECK macro to the top of libInheritedChannel.c so that the JNI methods 
are all together.
