Goal

VersaBoot introduces a new boot model that enables Solaris to store its root filesystem on storage that is not directly bootable by firmware,
such as iSCSI/IPoIB. The aspect of VersaBoot that enables this capability is that the boot archive is stored in separate storage that is directly
bootable by firmware, on the M7 platform the eUSB device on each CMIOU board can be used.
