Net-snmp should now work in an opensolaris non-global zone

While debugging a net-snmp issue a while back, I came across the following error:

error on subcontainer ‘interface container’ insert (-1)

These errors are caused by opensolaris bug #6640675, which causes all interfaces to be assigned an index value of 0 (this leads net-snmp to think there are duplicate interfaces). The fix was just integrated into Nevada, so hopefully the code will be back ported to Solaris 10.
