      POSIX

      Description

      There appears to be significant amount of common POSIX code, which could be factored out and shared among platforms (Linux, BSD, AIX)

      JDK-8252324 previously addressed common signal related POSIX code and factored it out nicely.

      For JDK-8247846 I'm experimenting with "create_sharedmem_resources()" API in perfMemory_bsd.cpp which looks identical to its Linux/AIX counterparts.

      It seems that any POSIX related files in:

      hotspot/os/aix/
      hotspot/os/linux/
      hotspot/os/bsd/

      should be assessed as a potential candidate for factoring common code, hence this umbrella bug.
