Excuse me, I am not quite familiar with Java, I guess what you said is:

 - The related feature need OS kernel support, if OS kernel does not
   support, it may report "Abort trap: 6" or others.

 - And OS kernel has feature to support "1" printed does not mean it
   also has feature to support "2" printed.

 - And I need try to make sure that my current Darwin kernel whether
   supports it or not.

If what I guess is incorrect, please let me know, thanks.

For me, whether Darwin kernel supports or not, we have to improve
current implementation (may be testsuite configure or Makefile) to
avoid testsuite breaking.
