This problem prevents the installation of mlxcx on an IPS system:

omniosce# pkg install --reject ntpsec \*
Creating Plan (Checking for conflicting actions): \
pkg install: The requested change to the system attempts to install multiple actions
for legacy 'SUNWmrsas' with conflicting attributes:

    1 package delivers 'legacy category=system desc="LSI MegaRAID SAS2.0 Controller HBA Driver" hotline="Please contact your local service provider" name="LSI MegaRAID SAS2.0 HBA Driver" pkg=SUNWmrsas vendor=Illumos version=11.11,REV=2009.11.11':
    1 package delivers 'legacy category=system desc="Mellanox ConnectX-4/5/6 Ethernet Driver" hotline="Please contact your local service provider" name="Mellanox ConnectX-4/5/6 Ethernet Driver" pkg=SUNWmrsas vendor=Illumos version=11.11,REV=2009.11.11':

These packages cannot be installed together. Any non-conflicting subset
of the above packages can be installed.

To test this, I did a full build and onu, then checked that I was able to successfully install the network/mlxcx package alongside mr_sas.
