I've found the reason of crash of 
org.apache.harmony.archive.tests.java.util.jar.JarExecTest. The reason 
for it is actually commit in revision 514596. Most likely other tests 
fail for the same reason. The sequence that leads to a crash looks like 

1. Java calls Java_java_net_InetAddress_getHostByNameImpl with a host 
name "jcltest.apache.org".
2. It calls hysock_getaddrinfo with this name and uninitialized 
hyaddrinfo_struct addrinfo variable.
3. Function hysock_getaddrinfo calls system function getaddrinfo and it 
returns not null which means error.
4. In this case hysock_getaddrinfo reads errno and records it in 
errorCode. But errorCode appears to be 0. Looking at man page for 
getaddrinfo I see that only in case of EAI_SYSTEM it sets errno to some 
specific value. In other cases errno state is not specified.
5. Function hysock_getaddrinfo records an error with errorCode 0 using 
findError. Since after the change in 514596 the errorCode 0 means 
HYPORT_SUCCESS, then it is considered to be no error. Previously before 
that change findError would return HYPORT_ERROR_SOCKET_OPFAILED.
6. Since hysock_getaddrinfo returned HYPORT_SUCCESS which is 0, the 
function Java_java_net_InetAddress_getHostByNameImpl continues to work 
with uninitialized addrinfo variable.
7. When Java_java_net_InetAddress_getHostByNameImpl calls to 
hysock_freeaddrinfo, free is called on unintialized pointer which leads 
to a crash.
