We don't document KVM in a non-global (what you call "child") zone, but it is possible.

I've put in for 014 the /dev/kvm entry in newly-created zones by default.  This was missing from earlier OmniOS releases.  I assume when configuring your non-global zones you did this yourself via zonecfg(1M)?

Just checking to make sure I'm not missing anything.
