As a thought experiment - if upstream did gain the ability to work on
Solaris, but it worked differently to Sun's version ... how would that
be resolved in libvirt?

Perhaps what you want is for libvirt to take the view that Sun's version
of Xen is an incompatible fork and handle it differently, as if it was
supporting a completely different virt platform?

Cheers,
Mark.
