Personally I would go for #ifdef __solaris ... #end ... #endif rather 
than #ifndef __solaris__.

I don't think the changes to NativeThread.c are quite right because it 
assumes that we need to signal threads on platforms other than Solaris 
and it also assumes the signal is __SIGRTMAX - 2. I don't know what you 
use in your AIX port but once the preemptive close issues are sorted out 
on Mac then I assume it will be SIGIO. So for this one I would suggest 
the ifdef in the init, current and signal methods be ifdef INTERRUPT_SIGNAL.

The change to socket_md.c looks okay to me but you will need to re-base 
your patch due to the Mac port in jdk8/tl.
