Hi Brett, if you are motivated, you can try the C program that I wrote to reproduce the bug on FreeBSD. It's attached to #25122. If the C program hangs too, it would mean that Darwin has also a bug (same bug??) in its code to handle signals in the code handling FIFO devices.

Or you can just add a skip mentioning this issue.

On my FreeBSD VM, it took a few minutes and multiples instances of the C program to reproduce the bug. On physical machines, other reported that a seconds and a single instance is enough. Well, see the FreeBSD bug report for more information ;-)
