When I did testing on Nevada (not S10) vmstat gave results that were
in line with the resource controls.  I did notice that df would report
an improperly large size for /tmp, which is another problem.  Your
results suggest that prtconf or the underlying system calls also need
to be updated to reflect memory resource controls.

I would guess that any of the parameters that Oracle is going to set
based upon RAM size can be hand-tuned after the installation.
