    Description

      While investigating JDK-8251438 it came to light that our POSIX signal handling code can be factored out.

      Linux, BSD and AIX currently have almost identical copies of signal code in their platforms. I compared current Linux to BSD code and Linux has more small fixes and comments than BSD. That will only get worse with the time, but worse of all, is that fixes like in JDK-8251438 currently need to be duplicated.
