I chose option #2:


There's now an update for r151014 that has the updated system/kvm (qemu/userland) and driver/virtualization/kvm (kernel KVM driver) on the repo server.  A "pkg update" will update your packages AND boot archive without.  I do recommend, however, you power down your KVM instances and "pkill qemu" prior to running the update.

Along with this update is a small fix to onu(1) for illumos developers who are working with r151014 as their base system for ONU-ing.

Thank you all again for your patience,
