Jakub's results looks very familiar to me, having been working on python 3.9 on illumos.

For OmniOS, we currently skip these tests via --ignorefile:

# wchar_t related failures
# illumos does not support multiple SCM_RIGHTS messages in a packet
# These tests fail on illumos and the first consumes a significant
# amount of memory. Investigation required.

We are also carrying some local patches for the following. Several come from Solaris.

- Stop python detecting and using epoll() on illumos

- scheduling priorities can be < 0

- differences in sendfile behaviour (improves the situation but is not complete)

- Enable sendfile for shutil.copy (mismatch between library and testsuite in terms of whether sendfile() is enabled on illumos)

- Fixes for building the socket module (_XOPEN_SOURCE=600)

- Emulate clock_gettime(CLOCK_THREAD_CPUTIME_ID)

- PTY patch

and a few others, not all of which are suitable for upstream.

With all of this in place, the headline test stats for OmniOS Python 3.9 are:

401 tests OK.

24 tests skipped:
    test_dbm_gnu test_epoll test_gdb test_idle test_kqueue test_msilib
    test_ossaudiodev test_smtpnet test_socketserver test_startfile
    test_tcl test_timeout test_tix test_tk test_ttk_guionly
    test_ttk_textonly test_turtle test_urllib2net test_urllibnet
    test_winconsoleio test_winreg test_winsound test_xmlrpc_net

Tests result: SUCCESS

and, additionally, the dtrace tests succeed (we test them separately as they require elevated privileges).
