Hi all,

may I please have reviews for this small change. It adapts the -XXaltjvm
handling to match all other platforms.

(Note that this patch has not the intention of improving the code, I almost
verbatim copied the code from linux. Improvements were done in different
changes, see e.g. JDK-8171508 ("os::jvm_path -XXaltjvm processing error
after 8066474") and JDK-8173828 ("realpath is unsafe").
Issue: https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8171504


Thank you!

Kind Regards, Thomas
