Not sure what is going on here, but I had successfully installed a PV
Opensolaris guest a while back.
My extra line was:
extra="/platform/i86xpv/kernel/amd64/unix -B console=ttya,livemode=text"

I put it in my blog (not trying to advertise) here:
This has the VNC setup and the running config that is slightly different

Mind you, this was for Opensolaris 2008.11 and not SNV-128 so I am not
