Does Solaris 10 10/09 release have NPIV support for LDOMs

Does Solaris 10 10/09 release have NPIV support for LDOMs?  I believe Open Solaris has this functionality but it is my understanding is that this is not yet included in Solaris.

From the Open Solaris site, http://hub.opensolaris.org/bin/view/Project+npiv/, it It appears this functionality is available in Open Solaris.  Since the project was created in October 2009 I can only assume this is not yet part of Solaris since the last release was 10/09.  Possibly Solaris 11 will include this functionality.

These just show that Emulex has support for NPIV.  QLogic also has such support.  This does not mean that Solaris actually supports NPIV functionality for LDOMs.
