Those refer to HVM domains.  Supposedly, OpenSolaris can run in PVM
mode, which is why I'm using the "i86xpv" kernel.

They also refer to an older release of OpenSolaris than the one I'm
running, which (I read) includes at least a couple of Xen-related fixes,
so I don't know how applicable any of that information will be to my

I can run in HVM mode if I have to, but previous attempts to do so have
failed.  I also haven't been able to find out for sure whether HVM
domains can support pass-through of a PCI device, which is something
I'll definitely need to do, so I'm trying to get PVM working if at all
