Yeah, checking for a Linux host and choosing which file to pick seems

But then it also makes sense to wrap the entire
MemoryPressureHandlerCocoa.mm around an #if OS(DARWIN), no? We have a
check for OS(LINUX) on the Linux counterpart.

Which would then bring us to another question: if that's a Darwin
thing, then shouldn't it be renamed to *Darwin.mm? This is even more
evident for MemoryFootprintCocoa.mm, which uses only Mach APIs and no
Cocoa APIs.

Yeah, I'd really like to hear feedback about that. At a glance that
seems reasonable.

Also, one more adjustment that might need OS-specific checks: XPCSPI.h
relies on audit_token_t to be defined in the host OS. I got around
that with:

Index: wtf/spi/darwin/XPCSPI.h
--- wtf/spi/darwin/XPCSPI.h (revision 214620)
+++ wtf/spi/darwin/XPCSPI.h (working copy)
+#ifndef OS(DARWIN)
+typedef struct {
+ unsigned int val[8];
+} audit_token_t;

 typedef xpc_object_t xpc_connection_t;
