I have also tried on a V440.  The problems that we currently have are:

  network booting makes the boot interface unusable (use another interface
    for root and then use drvctl to detach/re-attach the boot interface)
  internal disks (mpt driver) don't work (see also kern/42870)
  the clock will lose time under load
  4-way sparc64 boxes eventually hang

I need to find some spare time to look at the first two.  I hope someone else
can fix the others ;-)



  My other computer also runs NetBSD    /        Sailing at Newbiggin
