Kernel Zones - Adding Local Disks

It is possible to add a disk drive to a kernel zone by specifying its physical location intead of CTD.

add device
set storage=dev:chassis/SYS/HDD23/disk
set id=1
This is very nice on servers like x5-2l with pass-thru controller when all 26 local disks are visible like this.
