Recreated the filesystem manually with -O ^64bit,^metadata_csum, 
installed on it and silo works. So it seems one of these new options needs 
bootloader support too - at least in silo, have not tried grub yet.

Unrelated - git seems to be not installable at the moment because of 
version conflict with git-man?

sparc-utils seems to be missing from sparc64 - no eeprom and prtconf 
programs? Sending prtconf output was my first task after getting system 
installed, since there is no t5140 in the prtconfs repo.
