AFAIK if you are on sun4v and want Open Source you are
limited to OpenBSD or NetBSD.  The FreeBSD support was
never completed.  After investigating I think it would
take at least 2 months to complete.

I have been fighting to keep sun4u ssupport in FreeBSD
but I think with this news I am going to lose that battle.
