Thank you for the check_status macro, that makes the code much easier to read. And I appreciate
you checking for system call errors.
Thank you for manually running the runtime signal tests before we have fixed the blocking bugs for them.

As the gcc version used to build jdk8 does not directly support thread-local storage, I had to rewrite parts of the fix to use the pthreads thread-specific data API (pthread_(get/set)specific and friends). Hence the need for review, as opposed to simple approval.
