Comments
I've bumped the priority and set the fixVersion to 9 so that it's on the list to at least examine for JDK 9.

EVALUATION The MacOSX port is currently using the polling based WatchService implementation and this is sufficient for 7u4. Post 7u4 we should replace it with a kqueue based implementation.
