Following Serhiy suggestion at msg224477, this tentative patch adds the is_android attribute to the posix module and the default_shell attribute to the os module. No documentation for the moment. No test case is needed I think, as the changes in issue 16255 will test any solution found here.

An alternative to posix.is_android is sys.platform set to 'linux-android' on Android. These are the locations in the standard library that do not test for "if sys.platform.startswith('linux')":

Lib/distutils/tests/|386 col 16| if sys.platform in ('linux', 'darwin'):
Lib/test/|527 col 12| if sys.platform in ('linux', 'darwin'):
Lib/test/|135 col 26| @unittest.skipUnless(sys.platform == 'linux', 'test requires Linux')
Lib/test/|898 col 16| or sys.platform in ('linux', 'darwin')):
Lib/test/|2256 col 23| @skipWithClientIf(sys.platform not in {"linux"},
Lib/test/|4508 col 22| @unittest.skipUnless(sys.platform == 'linux', 'Linux specific test')
Lib/test/|388 col 26| @unittest.skipUnless(sys.platform == 'linux', 'Linux-specific test')
