Async IO problem on Solaris 2.5

Whenever I tried to run the latest snapshot of Kaffe on a Solaris 2.5
host, I'd get several `FIOASYNC: inappropriate ioctl for device' error 
messages and the JIT compiler would terminate by complaining that it
could not find class java/lang/Object.

It turned out that ioctl(fd, FIOASYNC, &on) would return ENOTTY for
real files, i.e., ones whose reads would never block.

The attached pacth makes FIOASYNC an acceptable error for this call.
A ChangeLog entry is included.
