After changeset e895de3e7f3cc2f7213b87621cfe9812ea4343f0, test_all fails on platforms that lack the _posixshmem extension module (Android for example):

FAIL: test_all (test.test___all__.AllTest) (module='multiprocessing.managers')
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/data/local/tmp/python/lib/python3.8/test/", line 34, in check_all
  exec("from %s import *" % modname, names)
AttributeError: module 'multiprocessing.managers' has no attribute 'SharedMemoryManager'

During handling of the above exception, another exception occurred:

AssertionError: __all__ failure in multiprocessing.managers: AttributeError: module 'multiprocessing.managers' has no attribute 'SharedMemoryManager'
