Submission + - boot support from ZFS root fs on x86 and SPARC (

Derkjan de Haan writes: "I am glad to see progress is being made on the the ability to boot from a ZFS filesystem:
This putback provides the ability to boot the Solaris Operating System from a ZFS root file system on both x86 and SPARC platforms. Full ZFS boot and install support will be available in a subsequent build. Because of the phased putback, we recommend waiting for the full boot and install support rather than attempting to use the ZFS boot features separately."
