Description

With the the putback of 6959264 EOF lx brand (commit:4c5722bc28dc) implementing PSARC/2010/169, support for the lx brand was dropped from OpenSolaris.

Linux ABI compatibility, while incomplete, was a highly useful feature for providing access to specific applications, for development, and of course, as a migration aid.

The branded zones framework still remains, and reviving the brand does not require extensive code changes outside of the modular portion and should have limited impact for non-BrandZ users.
