What features would those be? Solaris already does anything Linux can do. The only real benefit would be porting drivers for x86 hardware from Linux to Solaris, but Sun could already port drives from *BSD if they wanted.
No small benefit, that. Linux is far and away better at x86 hardware support than anything but Windows.
