LDOM hypervisor support is currently not available in Debian. It is
available in Oracle's "Oracle Linux for SPARC" though. It is also
available in OpenBSD as far as I know.

I am planning to add the LDOM tools to Debian. However, before we can
do that, we need to patch the Debian kernel to add LDOM hypervisor

I have actually asked on the SPARC LKML what the current status of the
upstreaming efforts are and got the reply that there is still some work
to do [1]. With Oracle's recent strategy changes regarding SPARC, I don't
know whether this will still happen.

Either way, the ldom userland source packages are available but somewhat hidden:
