Subject Hadoop on Solaris: an introduction

You may have noticed this notification:

HADOOP-11985 Improve Solaris support in Hadoop

So I thought it might be helpful if I gave a bit of background. The 
intent is to get Hadoop to the point where it builds "Out of the box" 
with all native components on Solaris and then consider what, if any, 
further work should be done. I work in the Solaris engineering group, 
colleagues from our performance and ISV groups are also involved.

I've moved all the Solaris-related issues I've found so far to be 
sub-tasks of HADOOP-11985, if you are aware of others please feel free 
to either add them as subtasks or link to them from HADOOP-11985.

I'm also part of a team that's looking at Solaris-Linux compatibility 
issues so if there are changes we could make to Solaris to make things 
easier I'd be interested to hear about them as well, although that's 
obviously a longer-term option.
