I have a small preference for sun.nio.ch.Net because these constants are 
used with Net.poll. Would you be open to separating this one from the 
AIX changes? The reason is that it isn't AIX specific, rather just an 
oversight that hasn't been an issue because it doesn't impact other 
platforms. Using os.name initially would be okay although we could 
change that over time.
