For serviceability-dev but I assume OperatingSystemImpl.c should move to 
readdir64 to be consistent with the other usages.

Separately, we have few inconsistencies (including in TimeZone_md.c and 
UnixFileSystem_md.c) where opendir/closedir is used instead of 
opendir64/closedir64. Looks like the AIX port may have run into issues 
as it redefines them. Something for a separate issue of course.
