PR: https://github.com/joyent/illumos-joyent/pull/284

Platform with this change: https://us-east.manta.joyent.com/bahamas10/public/void-lx/platform-20200407T000134Z.tgz

To create a void linux LX image:

# install the void image
mkdir /var/tmp/void-lx
cd /var/tmp/void-lx
curl -Ok https://us-east.manta.joyent.com/bahamas10/public/void-lx/void-20191203.json
curl -Ok https://us-east.manta.joyent.com/bahamas10/public/void-lx/void-20191203.zfs.gz
imgadm install -m void-20191203.json -f void-20191203.zfs.gz

and then create a VM with something like:

  "alias": "void-test",
  "brand": "lx",
  "autoboot": true,
  "quota": 20,
  "kernel_version": "5",
  "image_uuid": "49239ea8-1618-11ea-8d11-6bc9e7d76b7e",
  "ram": 512,
  "nics": [
    // CHANGE ME
      "nic_tag": "admin",
      "ip": "",
      "netmask": "",
      "gateway": "",
      "primary": true
  "resolvers": [
