> Pierre and Daniel, we could use some guidance on how to approach this.  The tests have quite a few unguarded includes of mach header files, uses of mach types, and includes of Foundation.  How would you like this porting to proceed?  Hubertus has already done some initial poking at it, but getting direction on the intended outcome would be very helpful.

We do have an internal test-suite that we can’t share because it rely on internal Apple infrastructure. I haven’t closed the loop with Daniel completely on this but our position I think is that these should be made portable even if that means dropping anything mach related stuff by hiding it behind a #if __APPLE__ or similar.
