Solaris 11.1 is working fine on my Intel Nehalem CPUs. Didn't test newer
families as I don't have a host with newer CPUs available right now for
oVirt tests.

On my workstation with old AMD X4 605e CPU I also get a bunch of panic
messages when trying to boot from the Solaris ISO. Tried it with
virt-manager with OS family Solaris under Fedora 19.

It seems that Solaris has issues with KVM and AMD CPUs.
Sadly I don't have enough time to investigate this further :(
