ll2ctypes (and possibly ctypes) does not work on pypy when running JIT tests
Created originally on Bitbucket by fijal (Maciej Fijalkowski)
When running something like:
pypy py.test rpython/jit/backend/x86/test/test_runner.py
We get a crash somewhere in Boehm on OS X. I think it does not work on linux either, but did not check. This is a problem, because on a new OS X you can’t attach a debugger to a system binary. Which means pypy becomes a default choice for Python, which in turn ends up with weird crashes. At the very least test_runner should clearly complain when run on top of PyPy.
