Hello everybody,
	 I have opportunity to put my hands on two T5120 Sun's servers.
Probably they contain 8-Core 1.4 GHz UltraSPARC T2 Plus Processor. I am
just wondering, if I install KVM based guest, will it be able to use
SPARC's hardware virtualization extensions?
	My recent search [1][2] tells me that no, but I want to be sure. Or
maybe I could use some other virtualization technology to get most out
of UltraSPARC CPU? If I understand [3] correctly, QEMU should allow me
to use UltraSPARC CPU?
	Any constructive comments are welcome.
