          There are already bugs open relating to use of the alt-signal stack. We used it once and then got rid of it. There has been some debate as to whether it really serves any purpose to try and restore it.

          There is almost zero chance that we will consider using alternate signal stacks again. Given this was filed against JDK 6 which is EOL I am closing this as "Will not Fix". If there is a new justification for investigating restoring alternate signal stacks then a new issue should be filed. Thank you.
