find & cpio for sol10 zone backup

 flararch is not a friend of solaris zones. what to use?  
 cpio, of course. but let's just forget those mounted local filesystems and yeah,   
 those shared local libraries would be evil, too.  
 # zoneadm list -civ |grep myzone  
 2 myzone     running  /export/zones/myzone     solaris8 shared  
 # zlogin -S myzone init 5 (physical power-off)  
 # find export/zones/myzone -fstype lofs -prune -o -local | cpio -oc -O /flar.arch/myzone.cpio  
 10958208 blocks  
 # ls -l flar.arch/myzone.cpio  
 -rwxr-xr-x  1 root   root   5610602496 Jun 5 09:52 flar.arch/myzone.cpio  
 5.5G yeah. that's about right.
