The typo ("legel" -> "legal") still exists in zip_util.c and maybe that

For the JDWP socket transport then it's interesting that shutdown is 
being used to cause the reader thread to be preempted. That may be 
useful when it comes to addressing the bigger async close issue.

I see this has been pushed to ppc-aix-port/stage-9. Would you have any 
objection if I brought this into jdk9/dev (minus the AixPollPort 
change)? We can use a different bug number so as not to cause duplicate 
bug issues. It should trivially merge when you come to sync'ing up the 
staging forest.
