If you want to use Solaris ZFS as a storage for Xen VMs,
you could do this:

- Install Xen with Linux dom0.
- Install *Solaris as Xen HVM VM.
- Install Xen backend drivers to *Solaris VM (this might need some driver 
porting/development if not already available).
- Use the Solaris VM as "xen driver domain", to provide block device backends 
from ZFS for other Xen VMs. 
- Start other VMs/domUs using the storage from *Solaris driver domain.
