illumos KVM from joyent requires Intel CPU with EPT instruction to work.

There is unfinished variant running on VT-only and AMD CPUs but is 
ATM I personally don't have Intel EPT CPU to test.

I have added manual for testing with mirroring and installing 
per-packages on this Wiki page:

See if package version differs from already installed package:
pkg list | grep newpackagename

Make new *local mirror* publisher, populate it with testing package(s) 
and start *pkg.depotd* for serving packages: (assuming 
_/export/home/share/oi-userland_ for mirror files location; *pkgrecv -r* 
recursively mirrors required packages.

mkdir /export/home/share/oi-userland
pfexec beadm create hipster-backup

pkgrepo create /export/home/share/oi-userland
pkgrepo set -s /export/home/share/oi-userland/ publisher/prefix=userland
pkgrecv -s http://buildzone.oi-build.r61.net:1000/ -d 
/export/home/share/oi-userland -r newpackagename
pkgrepo refresh -p userland -s /export/home/share/oi-userland
/usr/lib/pkg.depotd -d /export/home/share/oi-userland -p 10000

And adding new publisher to global zone and other linked-image *zones* 
and install packages for testing: (assuming zone location in 

pfexec pkg set-publisher -g http://localhost:10000 userland
pfexec pkg -R /zones/build/zone1/root/ set-publisher -g 
http://localhost:10000 userland

pfexec pkg uninstall entire userland-incorporation
pfexec pkg install newpackagename
