OpenSolaris b122 and ATI sb600/700 ahci

Updating OpenSolaris b121 to b122 results in kernel panic (NOTICE: spa_import_rootpool: error 5)

Upgrading to the b122 bits on my laptop resulted in a kernel panic and reboots upon boot attempt. See this bug:

My work-around for this is to boot into my working BE (b121) and do the following:

beadm mount b122 /mnt

copy from /kernel to /mnt/kernel these bits:


and these:



bootadm update-archive -R /mnt

My system then booted successfully to b122.
