If you are running Nevada, you should be able to use update on attach
to get them back.

zoneadm -z $zone attach -u

Since you say you require a patch, I'm guessing you are running S10.
My understanding is that update on attach will come in S10u6.  If you
can hold on a few months, you will be in good shape.  :/
