with the addition of shared memory into Python 3.8, we now have three tests failing on Solaris, namely `test_multiprocessing_fork`, `test_multiprocessing_forkserver` and `test_multiprocessing_spawn`. All of them fail in the same way:

ERROR: test_shared_memory_cleaned_after_process_termination (test.test_multiprocessing_fork.WithProcessesTestSharedMemory)
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File ".../Python-3.8.0b2/Lib/test/", line 4013, in test_shared_memory_cleaned_after_process_termination
    smm = shared_memory.SharedMemory(name, create=False)
  File ".../Python-3.8.0b2/Lib/multiprocessing/", line 100, in __init__
    self._fd = _posixshmem.shm_open(
OSError: [Errno 22] Invalid argument: '//psm_5c1b5800'

The reason for this, in my opinion, is that the test suite is accessing private `sm._name` instead of the normalized ``. Returned value already has one slash prepended, and another one is prepended SharedMemory init is called, resulting in double slashes, which is incorrect.

Change to `` fixes this problem.
