the perfect answer came from Casper Dik:

> Either use kgmon (if you sitll have it ) or lockstat to profile the kernel.

there's also the FAQ ID 3148 on sunsolve which documents kgmon (as there is
no manpage or anything). lockstat seems to run on 8+ (where kgmon is no
longer available), and it's even documented.
