no good ideas here, but as nobody else had one either I'll throw these in:

* contact Solaris support :)

* see if it is related to the EnableSendfile setting (NCA has some
relationship to the sendfilev API, but I don't know the details)
** if EnableSendfile is currently on, you could see if turning it off
results in the same performance before and after the upgrade (whether
or not that is similar to any of the results with EnableSendfile on)
