Even then, he only attempted to have the legacy Xen driver work on
Solaris, never the QEMU driver.

So basically if someone wants the QEMU driver to work on Solaris, they'll
need to go through and figure out all the non-portable bits and send us
patches to fix them.

IIRC, this particular kernel-headers message is because we need to be
able to create & pass TAP devices, and configure bridge devices. This
will need to be ported to Solaris' interfaces since this stuff is
non-portable
