This is not a regression, that I know of - just posting an update and wondering if this was believed to work, now, or if there are still known issues booting Solaris.  I still cannot boot Solaris under SPARC64 - looks like some recent messages between you and Blue indicate that at least some of the issues with SPARC64 boot are supposed to be cleaned up, but I still get an "out of space" error when trying to boot OpenSolaris for SPARC.  I'll have to try a few other variants and see if I get similar results.

Thanks, again, for all the work - the progress over the last couple of months has been enormous and I'm just chomping at the bit to see Solaris run under Qemu!
