About what I expected.

I've just bumped into your bsdtalk interview: This
appears to give a useful overview into the sun4v port.  One thing you
mention is that you'd started work on a virtual network driver.  How
far did this get and can you point me to the code,

It seems that the latest OpenBSD runs on sun4v.  I haven't investigated
how well supported it is.

an MTA that is either RFC2821-compliant or matches their claimed behaviour.
