There is at least one outstanding bug report for test_mmap failing on
AIX IIRC.  Possibly another for test_resource.  Please review bug
reports and file new ones/update old ones with the current status.
Unless if you provide patches, they probably won't be fixed though.
No one has access to AIX AFAIK.
