Sun has a fork of a fairly old libvirt release (0.3.something IIRC) in
which they've added LDoms support. The code is not present in the 
official releases of libvirt yet, and last time I looked it didn't
really comply with the XML format correctly, and still needed quite
alot of work done to it. Hopefully they'll find the time to re-submit 
the driver for inclusion in main libvirt codebase again in  the future.

There has been work in official releases to support Xen dom0 on Open
Solaris, but I think there are still some outstanding patches in the
Open Solaris repositories that aren't in our offcial releases.

I'm not aware of any support for Solaris Zones, or xVM  -that's VirtualBox
based i guess?
