A note on what's needed to actually use sp_counted_base_solaris (or
compile it...).

This code is valid for Solaris 10 update 1 (1/06 release) and later,
including OpenSolaris.

The code is valid for the original Solaris 10 GA (3/05) if the
following patches are applied:
(on x86/amd64)
118885-01 (or greater) atomic.h patch
118844-12 (or greater) kernel patch
118891-01 (or greater) llib-lc patch
118345-04 (or greater) patch

(on SPARC)
118884-01 (or greater) atomic.h patch
118822-12 (or greater) kernel patch
118890-01 (or greater) llib-lc patch
119689-03 (or greater) patch

The above patches were released in September 2005.

The code is not valid for Solaris 9 or older unless Sun decides to
release patches for the older operating systems.
