Do a 'touch /reconfigure' before you power down prior to the swap. My
experience has been that X will come right up after swapping
framebuffers on a SPARC. But, if it doesn't, fbconfig should fix
that for you.
 I think the device-specific configuration program for that card is
jfbconfig, but Solaris tends to deal with framebuffer swaps pretty
well, so fbconfig should call it for you.
