This is what "add device" is for in zonecfg(1m).  You can use this
functionality to cause the zone to have the tape device included
within it.  Just name the tape drive by its path in /dev.  Example:

# zonecfg -z testzone
zonecfg:testzone> add device
zonecfg:testzone:device> set match=/dev/rmt/0
zonecfg:testzone:device> end

Then reboot the zone; you should then see /dev/rmt/0 available to apps
running inside the zone.
