I plan to spend time on Volker's webrev later in the week (just too busy 
with other things right now). For the translation issue then it's an 
oversight in the original implementation, it just hasn't come up before 
(to my knowledge anyway). The simplest solution here maybe to to just 
move them to sun.net.ch.Net and have them initialized to their native 
value. In general then I'm not too concerned about that one, it's the 
changes to support async close on AIX that are leaping out at me.
