Description
From http://java.net/jira/browse/MACOSX_PORT-208

Comments
The macOS port is currently using the portable polling WatchService implementation and this is sufficient for 7u4. When time permits, we should replace it with a native based implementation so that it performs as will as the Linux and Windows implementations.
