Hi Volker,

The bug is not visible because it was inadvertently marked as confidential.
Since changing it from confidential to an open state is not a reasonable
option I will just state the description of the bug fix.

JDK-8029776 describes JDK8 Solaris specific code cleanup to address
possible unclosed file descriptors, to make array indexes more readable
and make sure functions return values.

Does this help?
